One of the true oddities of the plant world. The deeply cut and wierd looking foliage, appears to come directly from the ground, then orients itself in a north/south direction to avoid mid day sun. The large flower heads feature hundreds of smaller sunflower like flowers...trick your neighborhood know it all with this one!
