Hi folks! I put up a plant in the gallery here - yellow wildflowers that are prolific around Central Texas beginning in mid - October and still going.... Any ideas? I thought it was zexmenia but the I think the leaves are too wide. Another suggestion is Golden Eyes (Viguiera cordifolia or Viguiera dentata.) Anybody know?

I'll bet it is golden eye...the hybridized ones are most often called "bidens". By the way, it is amazing what came up after the rains here in Austin. I have dozens of Verbascum seedlings all over my yard this year. I also had an eggplant that I swear sat dormant for three years before popping back up after the deluges and is producing fruit! It was soooo hot and dry this summer, I thought it would never end and felt sorry for so many dying trees and plants.
