apologies pazap101- I seem to be off today with my ID and Pronouns :) Will watch for your similar spotting.
Gatorfellows: I am a she! : )
MathewDuncan - sorry I am slow and giving you more than one answer. did not realize your petals were not notched as pazap101 noticed. He did a good catch. The suggestion of butterweed does fit, sorry, more work for you to edit your spotting. Thanks for your patience. :)
Yes, I do believe you've got it! : ) Thank you, I was up half the night trying to locate this wildflower online. I will still photograph my find and post it...
Ok gave you another suggestion. Butterweed, a new plant for me; the petals are not notched. See what you think :)
It has a faint ordor, not sweet more herbal. This wildflower is a cyme, and I did not get a leaf. As you can see in this photo, there are no leaves at the top of the plant. The flower is about 1/2 inch, about 12 petals, and no notches on the end of the petals. I'll go back and look for leaves, since I only brought home a flower.
Did plant have an odor? Do you have a photo of leaf?
Will research your area some more and see what I find for you :)
I found this same flower but and not convinced it is sneezeweed, because the petals are different. Note the the tri-form petal on the sneezeweed photo. This flower seems to have single petals around the center.
Not 100%sure without seeing the leaf - got a leaf photo?
