Oat Hill Mine Trail

Each Nodding Harmonia (Harmonia nutans) inflorescence has two different kinds of flowers. The ray flowers around the outside edge each have a 3-lobed petal and a maroon dot at the base. (This inflorescence has 7 ray flowers.) The smaller disk flowers in the center have 5 pointed petals each. The Nodding Harmonia flower heads bend and nod in the wind - especially as the fruit develops. Aster Family.
