Cow Pen Daisy. I collected seeds for this plant from one I came across in a field near my home. The flowers were so bright and golden I wanted to grow them. It was during a time I was particularly interested in native plants. These flowers are not really good representations because they are too regular. Often the plants that have bloomed are more scraggly and the flower often look like they are missing petals. I still like the color of the flowers and have attempted to seed future plants to the outskirts of my yard, but with no success.
The plants name comes from how distasteful this plant is to cattle. They would eat down everything else around their enclosures leaving these to bloom and go to seed.
