    My sister got this as a gift. I can't quite identify it, and need a bit of help. Looks sort of like a mum or something daisy-like. What conditions does it need? Also, why are the flowers fading? Thanks.

    Rudbeckia, maybe? The flowers are likely fading because that's part of their natural life cycle.

    Thanks. I thought of that, but it looks unnatural to me.

    The leaves look like those from a Chrysanthemum.

    I knew I was on the right track - thanks! Any way of narrowing it down? I can't really argue with Rudbeckia either, though.

    I agree with Silver Surfer, the leaves are of Chrysanthemum. Try to rub the leaves with fingers and smell it. Chrysanthemum leaves have a very distinctive strong smell. I cannot describe it, but once you smell it, you will never be in doubt.
