Center of Golden Flame

The middle of a Flower Contest Entry
This is the center of an annual flower called Kiss Golden Flame Gazania for this contest. The entire blossom is stunning but does pull your eye away from the center. So again, this is cropped for this contest.
The Gazania is a genus of flowering plants in the Aster family and native to Southern Africa. They produce large, daisy-like composite flowerheads in brilliant shades of yellow and orange, over a long period in summer. It can tolerate dry climates. Gazanias are hardy and will thrive in most soils, no matter how poor the quality is. Ranging from terra cotta to bright yellow in color, gazania plants grow an average of 12 inches and bloom during the spring and summer months. These flowers grow as a perenniasl in zones nine to 11 and as an annual in zones three to eight. It is an annual in our zone 6.
This particular flower is a dynamic and deep color of golds, reds, oranges and terra cottas. I think the center enjoys being surrounded by the perfect and graceful petals. Thanks for viewing.
