Volunteer

Can any of our readers identify this flower? It is a volunteer that sprouted under one of my cedar trees. At first I thought it was a variation of the Joe Bell flower (http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news012112.htm), but the leaves are different also.















This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is a tribute to a wonderful man who did much for Ocracoke Island, Marvin Wyche Howard (1897-1969). You can read it here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news052113.htm.

    NC Mainlander agrees with Marion...think it is from the gazania family.

    Another vote for gazania. :-) Look at this site, Garden Coach Photos. The variety in color of the blooms are pretty amazing.

  5. Thanks to everyone who commented. Gazania seems to be the answer. The link above did not work for me, but this one did: http://gardencoachpictures.wordpress.com/2011/09/16/gazania/
