I included so many photos in my post about my second day in Batanes that in order to minimize the number, I decided to make a separate post about the interesting flowers I saw from that day. Still, there were 40 photos in that post – the most I have so far in one blog.
According to Google Images, the above yellow flower is called Gaillardia, or Blanket Flower, a genus of flowering plants in the sunflower family. I found it outside the Honesty Coffee Shop in Ivana, Batanes.
Here’s a collage of more flowers from that day:
The red rose was taken at the house beside the house of Dakay. The lavender one was seen in Alapad while the Purslane (I’m familiar with this because I made a post about Common Purslane HERE) was taken in Mahatao’s Lighthouse. The yellow flower with 5 petals and the red violet flowers beside the red flower were from Marlboro Country. The light pink flowers were from Chawa View Deck, while the red flower was from Monica’s Cottage.
It is Gaillardia × grandiflora Mesa™ ‘Yellow’ (Blanket Flower).
Thanks for providing me with its complete identification. Cheers!
You are welcome!
Milai, great photos-thanks!
