Heat- and drought-tolerant perennial with narrow dark-green leaves and yellow-and-white daisies over a long season of bloom. Bees and butterflies like it, too. Native to prairie and planes states of the south-central US. The small plant we purchased in May bloomed pretty much constantly throughout the season, growing into a substantial plant by end of summer. It was in full bloom again by early March of the following year, and kept up the floral show for several months, before expiring unceremoniously in late summer.
