Emilia sonchifolia - Cupid's shaving brush

Lyrics from the song 'Windflowers' by Seals and Croft best describe this flower:
"Windflowers, my father told me not to go near them,
he feared them always
Said they carried him away.
Windflowers, I couldn't wait to touch them, to smell them,
I held them closely.
Now I cannot break away."

Family: Compositae (Sunflower family)
