I had never seen this before so of course I had to snap a photo of them.  Barberton daisy,Gerber daisy,Gerbera jamesonii Click/tap to enlarge

  1. You have requested the creation of a new species for this photo, but that is not necessary. This ID was created some time ago. http://www.jungledragon.com/specie/2992/barberton-daisy.html

    A cultivated Gerbera daisy is very likely to be a hybrid - Gerbera hybrida (Gerbera jamesonii x Gerbera viridifolia).

    I had identified it 2 days ago. Did you remove the ID?
