Wonderful!

Gorgeous!! I had those beauties in California, African Daisies, petals open like spoons, one of my favorite flower. Sadly they stated selling regular daisies as African Daisies in the Nurseries so people called them African daisies when they were not!

We only found the frangipaniOZ on the crystalgraphics page and Andrea Lim on the NatGeo page, that is why we investigated. Apologies for the confusion.

Natral is correct, it's an Osteospermum - a whirligig cultivar. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/1923...

Thanks for clarifying Andrea! Apologies, we have to ask the question but we do unfortunately get people sharing images they have seen on the internet.
Lovely photo BTW!
