I think I asked last year when this bloomed for me & no one knew what it was. Try again...It comes back quite happily every summer in late August & grows like 4 feet tall. Its in a part shady spot.
I do like it there & think it was possibly wild flower seeds from somewhere?

Where are you girls tonight anyway??

I remember that flower of yours from last year. Don't remember if I tried to ID it or not.
But what do you think of this look-alike?

How'd I find it? Just luck probably.

I was thinking "coreopsis" and started looking for some variety of that. It became clear it wasn't that, because I couldn't find any that had multiple flowers on one stem or that had very droopy petals.
So I googled images ... "wildflower yellow drooping + green center disc".
I do love a good mystery. Big Grin

It is a beautiful flower. So delicate and pretty in it unpretentiousness. I suspect it's as easy and troublefree as most coneflowers. Do you find that true?

When I looked up green headed coneflower it said it preferred damp soil and full sun. Is that how yours is growing? How tall does it get?

It gets about three feet tall. I water that section all the time as I have hosta & fern & Lenten Rose growing there. It gets some filtered sun & not sure exactly how much. The soil is amended quite well right there. I don't see how it could be anything else as the picture is so right on! ?
