The “unknown flower” at EPCOT

© Copyright 2008 Tink *~*~*


These bright, orangey-RED flowers were found growing in a pot inside the Festival Center at the 2009 International Flower and Garden Festival at EPCOT this past May.


Normally when I photograph flowers at EPCOT, I look for a sign posted nearby that tells me what I’m looking at. However, for whatever reason, I don’t appear to have done that this time – and therefore, I’ve got NO CLUE what this flower is called! I tried googling, and the closest I could come up with was gerbera, but didn’t see any in this particular shade of red.

Anyone have any idea what this flower is called? Please leave a comment to let me know!

  1. I have it on good authority – it’s a NOTROSE. 😀

    Yes. When I was a very little girl – all flowers were divided into the following categories: Roses and Notroses. So that’s an orange Notrose.

    Then a little later in life – when I was a little older – and knew the names of more flowers – I thought that when I grew up, I was going to have triplet girls. And I was going to name them “Rose” “Daisy” and “Lily”.

    But enough about me……..:p

  2. LOL! You crack me up, Mari 😀

    Anxiously awaiting the opening of Ruby Tuesday so I can get some others over here to tell me what the hell it is!


  3. I believe you googled it right. It looks like a Gerber Daisy, they come in a multitude of colors.

  4. Isn’t just a daisy, Tink? I shouldn’t say JUST a daisy… it’s a gorgeous RED daisy for Ruby Tuesday! Beautiful! Thanks for understanding that I thought yesterday was Sunday…:)

  5. That is really gorgeous! I’m glad everyone else knows what it is since I have no idea. I would love to grow some in my garden though. Happy Tuesday 🙂

  6. This flower is beautiful, almost symmetrical, the petals arranged almost as spokes. Perfection in the shape of flora is fine, this a great capture!

  7. Hi Tink…great red flower the NOTROSE one 🙂 BTW, thanks for the message you’ve left at TWTW and for the concern. Am able to blog now, not so much and am still thinking what to do with TWTW. Thanks for your suggestion though, I’m looking for somebody who might want to take over. Have a nice day to you!

  8. Hey Tink, I asked my expert, Mrs. Jim. She said they were either anemones or gerber daisies.
    The petal resembles the Gerbera, or commonly known as gerber daisy.
    Google does good on each of those.
    Happy RT. I got a late start ’cause I was gone when it got put up.
    But I have found some very nice fertilizer at 40% off for your Gerbera as one of the subjects of my RT today. 🙂

  9. Well you already found out what it is, I have this very color in my garden along with several others. They make great cut flowers, but you need to stick the stem through a large straw or tube, so that they don’t slump over. They last for several weeks. I have a little vase in my kitchen window that I like to put just one in at a time.
