There are around 30 wild species in the Gerbera genus, which most would recognize as daisies commonly sold as cut flowers. They come in a large variety of colors, and these are largely hybrids bred for looks, Gerbera hybridus. They are members of the Asteraceae family (which is a huge family, if you haven’t yet noticed).
As you can see in this picture, the pollen comes from the central disc of the flower. This is actually a disc of many tiny flowers, called disc florets. The outer “petals” are ray florets.
