Chrysactinia mexicana (Damianita)


Damianita is native to the Southwest at elevations from 2000 to 7000 feet. This small evergreen shrub has fragrant, bright green needlelike foliage. It blooms heavily in the fall and spring with golden daisy-like flowers. This tough, durable plant tolerates heat, cold, full sun and reflected heat exposures, but needs well-drained soil. Over time, this plant can become woody, and light shearing in the early spring will remove old flower heads and encourage new growth.
