I went back out side and recounted the petals after posting the other picture. I counted 13 and when I was viewing the photo I counted 14. All of the blooms have 13 except for the one in the original photo. This photo should give a better up close view of the stalk and the leaves. Thanks for the reply on the other postings. Jim

hi there

I think it might be a Silphium. they have reddish stems. it is possibly S. integrifolium aka Rosin Weed. behind the flowers there should have lots of sepals that look like bracts. sepals are the green scales that enclose a flower bud before it opens.

Hey Jim ... when you were counting, did you do that thing with "she loves me, she loves me not"? Maybe they have a different number of petals so that little ditty really works???

Yeah , that would work. I was posting a message about your kudzo at the same time you were posting on my yellow flower. Strange things are happening on Dave's Garden site.

Mark it does have a lot of sepals and they are so attractive. That must be what it is. Do you know how to root? I've tried to root in water and it dried up in a few days. Thanks
