    Wow what a beauty Sf, never seen anything like it! have no idea what flower this is, was it in a glasshouse? wonderful colours and detail – love this :0

  • No, it was in the main garden amidst the perennials, Jacky. Of course, there was no label and no-one around to ask.

  • Just discovered that it is an inula flower bud, Jacky – it produces large sunny yellow flowers!

    Is this a wild flower??

  • I’m sure it’s a perennial – it was in a public garden amidst other perennials and annuals and shrubs.
