Bonjour JamalBellakhdar!

I don't speak, or understand French but I do recognize the word identification. Green Grin!

I wonder if your lovely flowers might be a variety of African Daisy (Osteospermum)

Merci Plantladylin pour votre réponse mais il me semblait que les feuilles n'avaient pas la même forme que celleà d'Osteospermum

From OP

Hello to the gardeners community,

I ask again your help for the identification of the plant whose photo is attached to this post. Is it Arctotis x hybrida?
Thank you in advance

Thank you Plantladylin for your answer but it seemed to me that the leaves did not have the same shape as Osteospermum

It looks like an Osteospermum to me also.

I have both, and I think Arctotis X. The leaves don't match Osteospermum.

Thumbs up The leaves are a closer match for African Daisy (Arctotis) and some do have yellow blooms.


Many images for comparison on this page: https://www.bing.com/images/se...

Another name to search along with Arctotis is Venidium . I had lost the tag I had and had to search for the name.

The one on the left is Arctotis, on the right is Venidium, with slightly smaller , greener leaves

Thank you! I have since divided the Arctotis and removed the Venidium as they were getting too big for that spot.

Venidium is apparently now a synonym for Arctotis.

Oh darn! I was agreeing with the common name African Daisy and didn't check the genus. I HATE common names. Grumbling
