Hi everybody,

I recently took a photo of this flower, now that I want to give it a name I can't find it on google.
Can anyone please provide an ID?

Image



Thanks,
Thomas

Hi Thomas,I think it is an Osteospermum or Cape Daisy, a native to South Africa .

The flower is also known as the reenblommetjie...( rain flower). It seems to be the first one to bloom after the rains !!!
