I have a terrible habit of trying to recycle plants (and anything else for that matter) and about three or four years ago i bought a plant that had big orange flowerheads on it and not much in the way of foliage but after only a few weeks all the heads fell off off and the plant has never reflowered in all the time ive kept it. Ive tried to subdivide it and plant in the border and in pots and in clay soil and in really thin chalky soil and amazingly it seems to grow well everywhere but still no flowers. I cut it right back this year and am hoping that this year it’ll come up trumps. I wish i had pics of its former glory or could even remember what it was called. My nearest estimation going by the leaves is St Johns Wort but the orange flowerheads remains a mystery. Any ideas guys?June 13, 2020 at 5:09 pm #69431NorthernTeacherParticipantJune 13, 2020 at 6:05 pm #69432AllanModerator

This is not the one I have Allan ,,, similar but this one is smaller and slimmer [mine seems bigger, rounder lobes, fatter and a blueier green]June 15, 2020 at 9:00 am #69462TubsParticipant
The leaf looks rather like a Chrysanthemum.June 15, 2020 at 9:04 am #69463NorthernTeacherParticipant
That’s interesting, Tubs, as I noticed in the link I posted above named Mugwort, it is one of the names for Chrysanthemum.June 15, 2020 at 10:47 am #69464VegVampKeymaster
Yip, Chrysanthemum gets my vote as well.June 15, 2020 at 6:16 pm #69471
Chrysanthemum would go some way to explaining the large orange flowerheads i recall when it was first bought but does anyone know if it would or should reflow,er again?June 15, 2020 at 6:52 pm #69472TubsParticipant
I would suggest you google large orange Chrysanthemum and once you can identified your plant the way forward to looking after it may become clear.
