Gazania, Kentlands Photowalk, Gaithersburg, Maryland USA IMG 2872

 

I posted this photograph in a number of Facebook groups and decided to share it with you as well. These are small flowers that do well in the summertime gardens in Kentlands.

 

Subhash Sharma  "The genus of this gorgeous Gazania with 18 different varieties was first formally described by German botanist Joseph Gaertner in the second volume of his major work De Fructibus et Seminibus Plantarum in 1791. Gaertner named the genus after Theodorus Gaza, a 15th-century translator of the works of Theophrastus. Gazania is a member of the tribe Arctotideae and the sub tribe Gorteriinae. Within the subtribe it is close to Hirpicium and Gorteria. Many of the species of Gazania are hard to distinguish and the number of species assigned to the genus has varied widely from one author to another. In 1959, Helmut Roessler published what he considered to be a preliminary revision of Gazania. At that time, he had recognized only 16 species."

Mr. Sharma is a Facebook friend who lives in Ireland. He frequently comments on my photographs as I post them on Facebook.

Dear Roy,

Very nice flower. Does it have a common name? Would be one to consider planting.

Good morning Roy.  This is a beautiful Gazania.  Though, I have to confess I did not know what a Gazania was before seeing this post.
