Answer: To be honest I am not positive which plant you are describing, but it could be a Gerbera or Transvaal Daisy. This is a perennial in warmer areas and might survive in about zone 6 in a favorable microclimate with winter protection. In colder areas, some gardeners dig them up and put them in pots where they may continue to bloom in a sunny window indoors for the winter. Other gardeners simply consider them to be a great annual for blooms from midsummer on.
