“Biological diversity is the key to the maintenance of the world as we know it.”
~ E.O. Wilson, Biodiversity
A bright annual that flowers from June to Sept. Lots of very showy yellow flowers with red centers are produced on fairly large branched plants. Central disk is brown. Flowers are usually 1″ across. Leaves are deeply divided into narrow leaflets and about 4″long. Two moth caterpillars feed on the plants.
Full sun and well drained soil are best. Grows naturally in glades and sandy soil, often in disturbed ground. Once established these plants will not need additional watering! These annuals will reseed as long as there is some open, bare soil in the location. The plants will rebloom after they finish if they are cut back half way and receive adequate moisture.
Great plant for sunny, hard to water areas. Long season of bloom.
