Flower of the Day – July 16, 2015 – Blue-eyed Daisy | cocoaevenings

This flower looks like the variant of a sunflower – with florets in the centre and many petals radiating in perfect symmetry around all 360 degrees. This flower even looks like it has pollen grains at the time of the photo!

EDIT: This flower has been verified to be an Osteospermum with common names, African Daisy, South African Daisy, and Blue-eyes Daisy.

However, it has a centre construct that is closer to the sunflower, with ray florets and disc florets. Meaning to say, the ‘blue eye’ consists of hundreds of miniature flowers, and is not a single flower on one stalk.

I cannot get enough of flowers with radiating petals. Beautiful nature.

Enjoy.
