Description

I was going to say E. incanum but I'm not sure what the key means by lobed involucres. I thought those were the leaf-like things at the base of the flower clusters, touching my fingers in this pic, which look almost toothed here, which I took to mean shallowly lobed, but pics of E. incanum look pretty similar.

I am assuming it's Sulphur flower: very upright leaves.

FWIW, incanum isn't on the basin list.

You're probably right. I need to look more closely for the involucres the next time.
