I need help identifying this flower... Please help.

Hi, I really need help identifying this flower.

I am not a gardener, and I know very little about gardening. However, if you could tell me what the breed(?) of this flower is or a book which could illude to the name I would be very greatful.

I think it's a Gazania, but let's get some verification from the rest of the gang. Opa, Newt, anybody else want to kick in their two cents?

Is Gazania the species of the flower or the name of the actual flower? I googled for "Gazania" in the images section and I saw flowers which look similar but not quite the same...

Thank you in advanced again for any assistance.

mystery flower

It could also be a blown-up strawflower, or something helichrysum (sp?), perhaps. Rots o' ruck.

Thank you, it seems it is a helichrysum. I am not sure what type of helichrysum it is though. It is possible that it has been blown up... I'll keep searching.

Some more images are located at https://www.fareham.gov.uk/town/community/fibintro.asp I am unsure whether the flower grows in England however, it is a high probability.

Found the name, thank you for your help.

I have found the name of the flower, thank you to all of those who helped. For the curios it is a Gerbera.

I thought so! It would have helped if that site hadn't cut out the leaves to the plant and all. Gerberas are very nice. :)
