This is a beautiful False Sunflower that is a few meters away from one of the Echinacea's plots. It caught my attention because it was the only flowering plant within a short distance. The False Sunflower (Heliopsis) is in the same family as the Echinacea (Asteraceae). This was only my second encounter with this plant and I'm certain that it's becoming my favorite plant!
