I don't know what it is but I don't think it is Cowpen Daisy, although the foliage resembles it, just a lot shorter. Smiling Smiling

The leaf edge on my mystery are too irregularly toothed for Vigethia. The flowers also bloom all the way up the stalk. I did manage to pilfer a seed head but it hasn't help me in an ID yet. Cowpen Daisy (Ximenesia encelioides) is out. It has notched petals. I'll keep looking and leave this thread open for a little longer. I tip my hat to you.

Heterotheca grandiflora look just right. Thanks Janet I think your right on the money. You need to add uber or dupper or both to your moniker. Super-duper uber sleuth. I tip my hat to you.
