The flowers are so pretty with their complex heads and colourful extensions. The picture doesn't show us what they are and where they bloom from BUT ive got these in my garden grown from seed but "Tectorum" not autumn. I am always pleased when they throw up a flower stem thick and hardy but they die and have to be removed.........that makes me sad.
Your clarity is to be applauded as is your title for they do appear as regal crowns. Nice shot of the complete plant. I love them just as they are without flowers. When it first grew one I didn't know what to do with it
What macro are you using.......I couldn't get good pics of my flowers- macro 30mm
Mandy - may your day be filled with sunshine
