OK, so what is that?
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?
Wow, that is a great shot. I will have to look that plant up. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Wow! What is it?! Very beautiful.
see reply to Christina…
Thanks! Will have to look that up. 🙂
It is amazing, isn’t it?
Such a unique flower — beautiful texture!
Yes, indeed Cindi
Spectacular! What is it?
I’ ve spent far too long puzzling over this. Come on Cathy, put us out of our misery. What is this lovely thing?
It’ s still bugging me. The leaves look as if they could be Echinacea? Or Rudbeckia? But those flowers look like nothing on earth.
Tee hee – caught you out! 🙂 See reply to Christina for the answer…
Wow! What is it? D.
See reply to Christina for the answer… it’s brilliant what you notice when you take all these photographs for a blog!
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.
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
But it’ s much more fun if you don’ t say and we have to work it out for ourselves.
But you were begging me to put you out of your misery…. 😉 ps but you now know NOT to look at the tags!!!
I was indeed begging you because you had me stumped. On the other hand if I do know it I feel nice and smug.
This is gorgeous, I would really like to know a little more about this plant.
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.
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!) 😉
Yes, and surprisingly the flowers are bigger than those on the much taller Inula grandiflora
Hi Cathy – fabulous photo, and couldn’t agree more about how writing a blog helps you see things you would otherwise have missed.
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?
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
