African Daisy White (आफ्रिकन डेझी व्हाइट )

IIT Kanpur is perhaps the most maintained IIT. Rather I felt its the only IIT which can be called IIT. Excelent Infrastructure, enormous campus, academic envioronment and cheap food. Above all its heaven if flowers are considered. "n" number of species planted all over the campus and well maintained. I was flattered. Next few posts will be from my IITK trip. The trip (actually I was attending a conference) became unforgottable because I won the best second poster award in that conf.
It is an annual plant, native to Namibia, Namaqualand and the south western Cape. During spring huge fields are covered with this bright white daisy, forming a dazzling mass. The white petals, actually ray florets, are mauve on the underside. For the best display it is important to visit the garden on a sunny day as these sun loving daisies only open with the warmth of the sun from about 10 o’clock in morning to 4 o’clock in the afternoon. As the sun moves across the sky their flowers follow, always facing the sun. African daisy forms a bushy plant that is covered with large white daisies all flowering at the same level.
The flowering season is from July to October, depending on the rain. The narrow leaves are light green, about 7 cm long, have indented edges and are alternately arranged on the stem. They are numerous at the base of the stems, becoming fewer and smaller near the top
