I posted this in another one of our forums but I think it is just for pictures. Excuse me if you get hit twice by this post.

I'm unable to ID this flower that I saw at the Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum, Arizona Wednesday and was hoping someone could. I am not sure it is a native. It was in the Butterfly Garden.

Thank you for any assistance,
Ed

Hi Ed, I think that plant might be Cosmos sulphureus. In my yard it reseeds freely comming up in a lot of different places. I weed it out where it's not wanted and enjoy it everyplace else.
I started the Aloe variegata seeds you gave me with great results. They are growing very slow in my unheated greenhouse, but I am really having fun with them.
Thanks for sending them to me, John

John,
Thanks for the info.
The Aloe variegata grows a bit slow unless it gets enough sun in the spring and fall. My under cover ones just barely grow but are very healthy. The ones I have in the Tucson sun, with a custom made shade over them are growing nice and pups are everywhere there is room. I'm glad they worked out for you. A common Aloe but definately one of my favorites.
Here are the covers made from modified tomato cages and 99 cent laundry bags.
