Took this picture in central Florida and was wondering what it was. I wish I'd gotten a picture of the leaves.
SOLVED: A different look
Wow look new to me never see this one , it is pretty and sorry not know what it is but hope someone will know. Maybe Baa or Evert or even Mark?
(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 :}
