English Daisy Flower - Bellis perennis - ACT - Austalia - 20160830 @ 12:31

When researching English Daisy Flowers on-line, I got the feeling that there wasn't a whole lot of love for them. Yet I found this example to be very colorful and cheery.

This macro photograph shows some of the details of the flowerhead that are common to all daisies - i.e., members of the Asteraceae family. An alternate name for this family is "Compositae" which relates to the morphology whereby the flower heads are a composite of many individual flowers. Each of the gold/yellow colored structures is a disk or tubular flower. By looking closely, I can see the stigmas, anthers and petals. The crimson/red colored structures are ray or ligulate flowers. In this photograph, I can only see the red petals and not the other elements of a flower.





[ Location - Braddon, Australian Capital Territory, Australia ]
