Helenium puberulum 'Autumn Lollipop'
|Still-green developing flower looks cool, too |
This member of the daisy family has the daisy thing rather confused - there are hardly any petals, and the center part is all round and buttony. Kind of cute, actually, although not a stunner. Ours were grown from seed labeled 'Autumn Lollipop', but the flowers are not as richly colored, in the yellow-to-red spectrum as ones I've seen in photos - my guess is that ours have reverted to something closer to the species. At any rate, we've only seen the first-year performance, still looking forward to observing how they settle into maturity.
