Green-and-Gold
Chrysogonum virginianum /Aster Family

I found this flower blooming at the UT Arboretum. Notice the small disk flowers which seem to be "flowers within a flower"! Each small flower is a single flower and can make a single seed. The male and female parts of the flowers mature at different times in order to keep from pollinating themselves.
Perennial
Where seen:University of Tennessee Arboretum
