    Gazania? 
    Or something similar I think - maybe Gaillardia :)

    They are gazania. I have loads and the bees love them. Mine are in a sheltered sunny place and they flower on and on. Some of them ( in pots) I have kept year on year .Don’t need any special care ,water weekly and a bit of general feed about every 6 or7 weeks. That’s all I do. Hope that helps you

    They are actually gaillardia, probably mesa bright bicolour, but other bicoloured ones are available.

    Yes - I think Gaillardia @pitter-patter . I always confuse those, hence my original post.  :)

    It’s the same way of looking after them anyway
  • My Gaillardia Kobold looks very like that.
