I have a plant that came up from a "butterfly mix" seed packet that I really like, but I'm not sure what it is. There were ALOT of varieties listed on the packet!
It has golden yellow flowers and is about a foot tall. It looks very much like a cosmos - same type of flowers, and it has a bunch of stems coming up from one central plant. The foliage is sort of fern-like, too. BUT it has a brown center - I haven't found any cosmos with brown centers. After the flower dies, it makes a sort of round ball of a seedhead. The flowers are a little more than an inch across. It seems pretty drought-tolerant. Anyone know what this is? Thanks!
I'll try to post a picture soon, but I don't have a digital camera, so I have to get it developed, scan in, etc. It doesn't look like the moonbeam coreopsis I've grown in the past - the foliage is not as fine, and it's more upright. Could be another variety, though, I guess.
