detailed seed-starting info below

Can't find much information about this one on the web, but my seed trade partner insists it is the correct species name. This is the only bit I could find, at factopia:

LAYIA Calliglossa (Calliglossa). This differs from LAYIA chrysanthemoides principally in having a pappus of usually several (ten to eighteen) unequal, rigid, subulate awns. California. SYN. Oxyura chrysanthemoides (under which name it is figured in B. R. 1850).

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
