Comments: This unique, eye catching plant has a weird flower. The round, yellow flower tipped with red looks like an yellowl with a red pupil. The bronzy-green foliage is edible. Plant tends to grow tall and flower bearing stems will lodge. Its chief accet is that it is something different for growing in the garden
