The many faces of Hetorotheca villosa

This flower, Hairy False Golden Aster, growing in Carol's rooftop display box is in many stages of bloom and post bloom at once. It's a charming daisy that can survive tough conditions like dry roadsides and it looks like rooftops too. Two lessons at once: what can survive under simulated rooftop conditions and what you might miss out on if you are too quick to deadhead.
