Gerbera in red and orange
This flower I have learned is the Gerbera Jamesonii. I bought a rose for the wife and this for myself as I walked out from office. And after 13 years of marriage she tells me that she likes 'Gerberas' more than roses.
All these years I have simply referred to these flowers as daisies. Have to thank Google and Wikipedia in turn. I will shamelessly reproduce the knowledge I have so gained now:
Gerbera jamesonii is a species of flowering plant in the genus Gerbera. It is indigenous to South Eastern Africa and commonly known as the Barberton daisy, the Transvaal daisy and as the Barbertonse madeliefie in Afrikaans.
The species is perennial and reproduces asexually. This plant produces tall colorful flowers in season. The flowers may be red, yellow, pink, or orange.
The flag and coat of arms of the Province of Mpumalanga include a depiction of this flower.
