Yellow Buttons - Wildflowers 26 October 2012

"Yellow Buttons" Chrysocephalum apiculatum (sold as Helichrysum ramosissimum)

This Spring, the wildflowers are not as prominent as they were in 2011 after the January Rain.  However there are still flowers to be seen.  The Yellow Buttons are a pretty little plant, low to the ground and seem to grow well in very dry areas.  J.G.
