…not usually a purple fan; however, came across this in my archives from last June and it sort of called out to me…don’t hate me because I’m purple…is this a Zinnia?, anyone know what this is?

    Not sure what it is, but I don’t think it is a zinnia. Fantastic picture of whatever it is!

  • Thank you, my friend Celeste advises it is an African Daisy!

    Not a zinnia, Kat. This is an African daisy, and an especially pretty one at that! Here’s a link to Monrovia Nursery (a major plant supplier in my area) showing one of the Osteospermum varieties with spoon-shaped petals like yours: http://www.monrovia.com/plant-catalog/plants/12.... I love the way your gorgeous bokeh brings out the purple colors!

  • Thanks, Celeste.. I was sure you would know….thank you for the link too. I should start to learn more about flowers….thank you again so much!
