African Daisy Season


It's African Daisy season in Phoenix and these perennials are popping up everywhere.  Many people have them in or around their yards and there a few place along roadways where they pop up and brighten the landscape for a few weeks.  I found this group growing in that space between the sidewalk and the street in a residential area.


I decided to try a shot from below looking up.


Odd man out!  I'm not sure where this white one came from.  African Daisies are always yellow and orange.


These beauties are a sign that desert wildflowers are on the way!

Beautiful! The white one is interesting. I guess in any large group there are bound to be a few genetic outliers!

Google Images says African Daisies come in every color under the sun. Maybe the Arizona ones only come in yellow and orange.

You must have had to get down on the ground to take that one photo from below! As for the white odd fellow amidst the yellow - are there albino flowers?
