Seed ripensearly October

Cheerful annual, with bright yellow daisies. The seed we got originally was for the 'Flower Power' strain, but that's several generations ago, since we've grown it from the previous year's seed several years in a row now.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
