Yellow ray flowers, held in reddish-brown cups, are preceded by pineapple-like buds. The strappy, irregularly toothed leaves are silver-green. Seedheads like those of dandelions. More a wildflower than a garden specimen, but I'm enjoying my round of observing it in the garden. If in the end I've introduced yet another weed into the garden - well, at least it's a pretty one.
Comment a little later into the season: the plants looked pretty much expired after setting seed. They looked darn ugly at that point, so I yanked them. I don't know if they would otherwise have come back next year.
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
