Hi, I found this flower in my backyard. I think it may be from a mixed seed...
This is straw flower. Look at Google Images. Here is a nice website about it: http://northamericanfarmer.com/Flowers/Strawflowers.aspx
Thank you -- that was so quick! I am glad to know what it is, although disappointed to find out it's not a perennial. Sounds like it would be easy enough to grow again next year. Rebecca
Yes it is.
