name of this plant ... it bends!

vieja_gw(z7NM)September 12, 2011

I have a perennial flowering plant that has narrow 2 inch flowering tops/stems with pinkish small flowers along the stem. I can't remember the name but I do remember that it is often described that one can bend the flowering top of the stem & it will stay the wayit was bent. It is just now through flowering & setting seeds on the stem/top ... any one remember the name? I have it growing along with the Shasta daisies & the leaves are somewhat similar. The name just escapes me!

Glad to help. I'm not growing it now but I enjoyed it in my previous garden.

I always wondered why it was called that. Cool.
