Prairie zinnia grows on arid hillsides and mesas throughout much of the Southwest at elevations from 2000 to 6000 feet. This deciduous, long-lived perennial groundcover spreads by underground stems to form colonies. It blooms though the summer and into fall with yellow-orange daisy-like flowers. After blooming, the flowers turn dry and papery and persist on the plant. Plant in full sun and well-drained soils.
