Townsendia parryi from seed sown last winter.  Nice to see this in the fall, the size of the flower is much larger than I have seen in the wild, but my experience with it is very limited.  Other species can exhibit wide variation in appearance due to many factors so maybe this is not unusual.  This plant was subject to two defoliation events late this past summer so this could explain why this developed.

Townsendia parryi sown last winter.  This plant was subject twice to partial defoliation by some creature (bird?) until I place a cage around it.  I was delighted to see this bloom in this season as I thought it was mainly a spring bloomer but the stress of defoliation some chemical response.  The size of the flower also impressed me the ones I have seem in the wild were only about half the size.  People familiar with the habits of this species will know if this is an unusual size.

Well that explains the beautiful fresh looking foliage!  You sure do defy the odds at times, Mike.  Bravo!
