I have never seen a flower like this they were as small as a daisy. I found them in the garden of our hotel in Morocco.

What a gorgeous flower! I have never seen anything like that, either!

That is a gorgeous flower -- and I believe it is the second one I have seen today! What a coincidence! Go look at Carletta's, Round the Bend, blog! She called it a Gazania Daisy!

A camel ride and beautiful flowers ~ does it get better than that?

Carletta said...

Hi Gattina,
Do we have the same flower? They certainly look really similiar.
The Gazania I have is about twice the size of a daisy bloom across and can grow about eight inches tall. They look like a daisy and are tall like daisies but wider across.
They were new to me at the nursery so I don't have much experience with them yet.
Your plant in the bottom photo looks compact like ground cover and I don't see the thin like grayish green leaves and the black radiating out doesn't seem to fit Gazania at least what I researched so far.

It's a great shot Gattina!
Maybe someone else will be able to tell us both more.

WOW is right!
I love orange.
The camels are cool too!

I thought maybe the flower was huge but I see it's very small. Very vibrant and lovely!

Awesome photo!

It does look like a Gazania bloom, but the leaves are different.

I don't know for sure what they are but they remind me of the Gazanias that grow in my yard though the color of yours is a bit more vibrant than mine.
Hugs and blessings,

well if that is not a stunning flower then I don't know flowers! This is Amazing, I can smell it now!

Oh no... do all the camels wear a muzzle? Or was this a particularly savage beast?
