I like this one too. My favorite cultivar is called Irish Eyes and has green centers and yellow petals.

I just love this plant for hanging baskets - it's very easy to start from seed and the blooms last and last! I think the blooms look like tiny sunflowers, especially once they mature and the centers turn a dark brown. I highly recommend this flower!

I'm pretty sure this is the plant I've been growing from saved seed for several years. I'd forgotten the name, but my cultivar was 'Mandarin Orange'. It's a tough little plant that does very well in my hot, sunny mailbox garden and is just covered in blooms that look like tiny black-eyed susans. Roots seem shallow, but after it starts going it doesn't need much watering.
