Silverpuff of the type that flares out at the tip of its elongated flower head
But some varieties of silverpuff do let their white rays curve outward from the tip of the flower head to expose the disk flowers within. Here you see what was obviously a close encounter of that second kind. Like the previous photograph of a constricted Chaptalia flower head, this one came from a February 24th session at Pat and Dale Bulla’s native plant playground.
