Terracotta Gazania

gazania krebsiana


I found this lovely flower completely in the wild . In the foothills of Mt Diablo. I don't think it is a wild flower though. Seems to be seed dispersal at its finest.

Yes, Gazanias are native to South Africa, but they are common gardenplants.

igorneau,could very well be! These are wild flowers in South Africa,
Seeds are able to travel across large distances and can remain viable for a number of years.
Maybe they traveled from S. A.!!
