I'm hoping someone here can help me identify this plant. I bought it
at Home Depot 2 weeks ago, but the DH threw out the pot and tag. The
pots were branded "Florida Friendly Plants.com," but their website
doesn't show this plant and I spoke to their rep today, who happened
to be at Home Depot and he couldn't help.
The flower is an inch across, daisy-like, with a dark purple center.
The petals are half vibrant purple (the outside end) and half white
(inside, next to the purple center). I've searched through pictures
of African Daisies, Cape Daisies, and can't find anything that
matches. Most of the flowers that have bi-color petals softly fad from
the color to white, but this petal has a fairly sharp transition. It's
Here's the biggest problem, though. All of the daisy and daisy-shaped
flowers I've seen have either fine foliage or deeply forked leaves.
This plant has leaves that are heart shaped, with an irregular margin,
and from 1" to 2" across.
I'm trying to get some pictures to link to, but maybe someone knows
what this plant is.
