What's Blooming In Winter

Nothing like a punch of bright orange on a winter's day. The true name of these perennial daisies escapes me. They're prolific bloomers, don't need much water and come back faithfully year after year. We cut them back hard when they stop blooming and they come back even stronger the following winter.

Snails find other things to eat and except for an occasional caterpillar, these daisies are relatively pest free.

They look like African daisies. Ours attracts hummingbirds in the summer.
