Notes:

Last fall I collected some of the “hairy” seeds of this plant from another yard, got them to germinate in a pot and nursed the seedlings through the winter. They have thrived since I put them out and watered them daily – now they are in bloom, but I have no idea what they are. The flowers resemble lantana, but there the similarity ends.
