    OK, so what is that?

    • Cathy says:

      Hi Christina/Cathy/Colleen/Chloris, etc! I made sure the post was tagged with the name and if you hovered your mouse over the picture it would also tell you that it is Inula hookeri 🙂 It’s amazing close up, isn’t it?

      • Colleen Chesebro says:

        Wow, that is a great shot. I will have to look that plant up. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  2. Cathy says:

    Wow! What is it?! Very beautiful.

  3. Cindi says:

    Such a unique flower — beautiful texture!

  4. Colleen Chesebro says:

    Spectacular! What is it?

  5. Chloris says:

    I’ ve spent far too long puzzling over this. Come on Cathy, put us out of our misery. What is this lovely thing?

  6. Chloris says:

    It’ s still bugging me. The leaves look as if they could be Echinacea? Or Rudbeckia? But those flowers look like nothing on earth.

  7. Wow! What is it? D.

    • Cathy says:

      See reply to Christina for the answer… it’s brilliant what you notice when you take all these photographs for a blog!

  8. Chloris says:

    I never would have guessed. You are right it is wonderful to be able to examine plants close up like this.
    I have to wait for you to tell me what Wordless Wednesday plants are, you can’ t hover with a mouse on your tablet.

    • Cathy says:

      Yes, I did remember you saying about the tablet – does it not work if you tap it with your finger? I have not use one myself. I will always tag my WW posts so that’s where to look if you are stumped – at the tags at the bottom of the post

  9. This is gorgeous, I would really like to know a little more about this plant.

    • Cathy says:

      I only came across it a couple of years ago, Charlie – I think it is pretty dependable in the UK and quite hardy but I don’t know about your part of the world.

  10. I was puzzled by this one – totally amazing! It’s like a Catherine wheel! Had to read your tag to find out what it was. Beautiful, lofty, big yellow daisy – am I right? (Hope so, or I’ve made a fool of myself!) 😉

    Hi Cathy – fabulous photo, and couldn’t agree more about how writing a blog helps you see things you would otherwise have missed.

  12. I’ve never before seen anything quite like this! It’s absolutely gorgeous!

    Cool plant. I took a look around for it and it looks tempting, how does it hold up after bloom?

    • Cathy says:

      Last year was its first full season here – I recall it flowered over a long period and I probably cut it down well into the autumn
