Gazania splendens! Very wonderful ground cover using all over the middle east for gardening purpose. It is a perennial plant with gorgeous flowers. We have many varieties in Riyadh, KSA

Sir,

It is Gazania rigens (G. splendens), not G. linearis, for the later should be yellow or orange only. Do not know other differences.

surajit

Sir,

You provided the difference between the two species of Gazania in the thread - https://groups.google.com/g/indiantreepix/c/6_Nef_VKkpA/m/-I99ZI3SMFcJ.
One key point of Gazania ringens is presence of white spots at the base of ray florets (which is absent in G. linearis) - https://keyserver.lucidcentral.org/weeds/data/media/Html/gazania_rigens.htm. These white spots are absent in my flowers.

Yet, I agree with Santosh ji and Rawat ji, it is G. ringens, because it is cultivated and involucre is similar to those at lucidcentral site.

Thank you
With regards

Thank you, Sir ji, the lucidcentral site says hybrids of the two taxa, ringens and linearis are also thought to be present in naturalized population. I wonder if these ornamentals came from those hybrids!


Thank you
With regards
