Plant Identification

Andrew Kinsella asked 10 years ago

My problem is a plant identification. In the attached photo is a small border perennial plant that has continued to survive every winter since I bought it about 4 years ago. I want to get some more, but nobody knows or has seen it before.(Secateurs indicates scale)

This is sanvitalia or creeping zinnia form Mexico. Normally an annual but there are some perennial species and perhaps this one has some genetic material from one of these. A popular form is ‘Million Suns’.
