Well, the leaves look like it. It's either that or maybe a plant called Creeping Zinnia whose latin name is Sanvitalia ~ the leaves look like the ones in your picture and the blooms are yellow, but the centers are darker, I think.

Milo, IA(Zone 5a)

Dinu: It is Melampodium [Leucanthemum Paludosum] It is an annual. I use it where you would plant Marigolds. Also very good in containers. It blooms all summer.

You beat me to it, lol. I finally found one I know what it is!! It reseeds really good and the mildew doesn't affect it as badly as it does zinnias.

Mysore, India(Zone 10a)

Thanks very much Debby. It is indeed what you said. I also saw your entry in the P-database.
