Artist's Description

Gloriosa Daisy- Rubedeckia hitra (Asteraceae)

Perennial wildflower

The Gloriosa Daisy is known for its Perennial wildflowerand unique shape.

Both monocotyledon and dicotyledonous flowers use the flowers as a sexual organ. A flower consist in the 4 following parts:

Calyx – the outer whorl of sepals; typically these are green, but are petal-like in some species corolla – the whorl of petals, which are usually thin, soft and colour to attract insects that help the process of pollination.

Androecium (from Greek andros oikia: man’s house) – one or two whorls of stamens, each a filament topped by an anther where pollen is produced. Pollen contains the male gametes.

Gynoecium (from Greek gynaikos oikia: woman’s house) – one or more pistils. The female reproductive organ is the carpel: this contains an ovary with ovules (which contain female gametes). A pistil may consist of a number of carpals merged together, in which case there is only one pistil to each flower, or of a single individual carpel (the flower is then called apocarpous). The sticky tip of the pistil, the stigma, is the receptor of pollen. The supportive stalk, the style becomes the pathway for pollen tubes to grow from pollen grains adhering to the stigma, to the ovules, carrying the reproductive material.

Single and double blooms and varying colours of petals from yellow to red to burgandy and variations there of, can occur from from one cluster and root mass of the same plant.

Found in well drained, sunny locations, this plant thrives almost anywhere.

Used widely in gardens, but is a true wildflower – it is derived from the Black-eyed Susan.

This is a hardy long lasting flower. Blooms from July to September.

This shot is of a very pleasent discovery I made along a hillside on my property a few Summers ago…I did not plant this flower anywhere else on my property! I have no idea where it came from, now it’s popping up all over the place! :]
