About plant names...

This African daisy hybrid was created in 2002, and is not found in the wild. It is one of several colors in the “Symphony” series of hybrids.

Identification: Plants are 12-16" (30-40 cm) high and about 6-12" (15-30 cm) around. The bright orange daisies, with purple centers, are probably unique in their coloration. Flowers are 1-1½" (2.5-3.8 cm) around, and each petal ends in three sharp tips.
