The petals of this flower look like a coneflower to me, but when I look at coneflowers, the center does not match.
Any ideas of what it is?

Thanks,
Patti

It would help to see more of the plant, but maybe Senecio confusus http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/1329/

I think you are right. This image shows more of the foliage. I was going for the butterflies, so I didn't concentrate on the plants.

Thanks so much for taking the time to reply!

Regards,
Patti
