Daisy

I bought a gerber daisy plant earlier in the summer and planted it in one of my planters on our porch. It had a few blooms and then those died away so we cut them off hoping for new growth. I wasn't sure it would have any more blooms and a couple of days ago I noticed a small bloom. This morning it was a pretty red flower. This little bloom totally surprised me.It's a little red pop of color amidst all these big green leaves.  There's just something about red gerber daisies. I need to do a little research on gerber daisies. I'm not even sure if they are an annual or perennial. I'm hoping I can plant it along the driveway in hopes it will come back again next year. I took these photos with my 50mm macro lens.
