A white-and-yellow-flowered composite species without any strong UV floral pattern. The central disc has less UV reflectance than the outer petals, but contrast between these areas of the flower head is quite low.

On film (RTP). these flowers are rendered dullish red to near black, still without a clear UV pattern.
