FFF199 - ARCTOTIS

Arctotis is a genus of annual and perennial plants in the family Asteraceae. Arctotis is native to dry stony slopes in southern Africa. Some of the plants are alternatively placed in the genus Venidium. The common name is "African daisy", or "Gousblom" in Afrikaans.

These plants have daisy-like composite flowers which tend to close in the late afternoon or in dull weather, but numerous cultivars have been developed for garden use which stay open for longer, and are available in a wide range of colours. Tender perennials are often grown in temperate regions as half-hardy annuals. The garden hybrid A. × hybrida hort. 'Flame' has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

  15. Hi Nick!
    Congratulations on the 200th flower. That's an impressive number, so I am sending you today (pink) a rose, as Moni (reflection blog). Because yes fits today then also a bit the song of Hildegard Knef, easily converted ... "For you it should rain red roses, you shall all wonders encounter ..."

    Best regards

    Anne
