Two years ago I planted some WS seedlings of Rud. 'Goldilocks' and Rud. 'Cherokee Sunset'. They are located near my patch of per. black-eyed susans. This year, I got two really beautiful seedlings that had self-sowed.
This one looks like a zinnia it has so many petals. It has been beseiged by bugs but is flowering nevertheless.
This one has the beautiful double petals of 'Goldilocks' but the ruddy center of 'Cher. Sunset'. The bloom size, however, is gigantic. It has shaken off the heat and lack of water like a champ.
just thought I'd share some pics of the "kids"
