OK, time for theName that Plant puzzle du jour. :)

 The whole picture (pretty much) is the same type a plant



Rue?  But the leaves look a little too big.  Did you know (if this IS rue) that you are never supposed to do anything but STEAL rue from someone else's garden?  Not buy it, or be given it?  I forget how that bit of folklore came about...

But the time I got some from a friend, we agreed she would turn her back while I "secretly" dug some up.  :)

I wish I'd known this thread was about PLANTS!  :)  (I'm only on Page 19)

This is a gaillardia or Indian Blanket. I just saw the first one of the season last nite on my run. I saw a bunch of flowers I wanted to photograph, but my daughter has stolen my camera and I hope I get it back soon.


Lee, it does look like Gaillardia (Blanket Flower), but it's smaller.  I agree it looks like a kind of coreopsis (though not one I remember ever seeing.)
