Thymophylla pentachaeta

Golden Dogweed

This short-lived, herbaceous mounding perennial is native to Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and northern Mexico. Mounds of fragrant, lacy, bright green leaves are almost hidden by clusters of tiny gold daisy-like flowers in the warm months. Plant it in full sun and well-drained soil. This plant reseeds readily, but is easy to control if desired. An excellent plant for butterfly gardens, it provides both nectar and food for larvae. Syn: Dyssodia pentachaeta
