Took this picture in central Florida and was wondering what it was. I wish I'd gotten a picture of the leaves.

(Baa looks round furtively, cos she doesn't know)

Do you have a description of the leaves please, it looks like a Senecio reletive but the disc behind the flower is unusual.

The flower looks like Berlandiera, either pumila or texana, but the leaf is different. I wonder if the basal leaves are what is pictured, and maybe they are different on the upper stem.

How tall is it? It looks like a bidens species to me. This is the nodding bur marigold http://www.ct-botanical-society.org/galleries/bidenscern.html

Poppysue, I thought so, too, but the petals aren't notched. The leaf of some bidens certainly look like this.

Thanks ladies for all your help. I was pretty sure it had to be one of the Berlandiera after Aimee posted but coundn't quite find a match. I'll try to get it added to the database in the next few days. Boy do I love Dave's Garden! It's amazing how much I've learned about my own backyard lately.

I was going to say Berlandiera as well. I have some seeds of Berlandiera lyrata which Mark and spourts28 sent me =) They have chocolate scent in their flowers :}
