Remember Janet’s plant sale? I got a message from her the other day with photos of a magnificent stand of 8′ tall yellow, daisy-like flowers on sturdy stems that need no staking. I bought one of these unidentified plants at the sale, and while it tops out at 6′, I thought photos of my single plant would be easier to see plant structure as I send out my plea to all the ace plant-identifiers out there.
Here is a shot of the leaf structure.
And the first blossom, with a few of the buds waiting in the wings.
If you look carefully, you can see the overall architecture of the plant in this not-so-hot photo on a hot day. I expressed my desire to have more of these to Janet, and she said not to throw any more money her way, as they multiply quickly. How’s that for truth in advertising? I intend to buy more next spring anyway, as I am impatient to smother this fence in plant life. If you can enlighten us with a name, Janet and I will both be eternally grateful.
