    UPDATE: If you read down you will see this was already identified. It's Telekia speciosa, common name Heartleaf Oxeye.

    I've looked everywhere to find the correct name. Anyone know?

    whereabouts did you come upon the photo (or the actual flowers)? That might help narrow it down.

    The non-scientific name is the Whitey Tighty flower, because it's yellow and brown.

    That's it! Good job. I guess a common name is yellow or heartleaf oxeye.

    Up front? I'm pretty sure that's Pete with Wendy and Susan behind him to the left. I don't know the other two goons.

    Why not go to a horticultural website and ask them a question on gay fitness?

    The guys over at RealBotanist.com are a bunch of closeted homophobes, and you just know they're over at each other's place cross-hybridizing every weekend.

    May I recommend Brugmansia insignis

    Brugmansia_insignis_Ecuador.jpg

    It's highly toxic and hallucinogenic. Perfect to disorient and molest your targeted prey =)

    I think that is the correct name - genus and species

    The Heartleaf Oxeye (Telekia speciosa) pictured appears to be a varietal. I'm basing that on the petals. It could just be environmental conditions though and not a varietal since there's no information other than the photo.

    As for the Brugmansia insignis, where I live they are more commonly cream white or yellowish, so I'd assume that this is a hybrid (again - could be wrong since my botanical strengths tend to be more toward the northeast US). I like these when they are in bloom but I'd probably not have them in the yard anywhere near where the dog would have access to fallen leaves and blooms just because of that toxicity.

    All Brugmansia are endemic to South America. Arborea, Aurea and Suaveolens have the cream colored variations, Insignis tends to be redder.
