Angelita Daisy

Hymenoxys acaulis

Angelita Daisy is a tiny member of the sunflower family that is making a big name for itself across the Southwest. This perennial thrives in high heat, tolerates temperatures well below 0 degrees F. and blooms nearly year-round. Its bright yellow daisies sway lazily in the breeze on long, slender stems above low mounds of grass-like leaves. These Arizona natives are highly drought tolerant, surviving in the desert on annual rainfall alone. Angelita Daisy also performs well through the damp conditions caused by our summer rains, and supplemental watering throughout the rest of the year will encourage its dropped seeds to sprout into new plants in spring.
