In Pennsylvania, we ranked this among our must-have annuals. The small bushy plants, with thread-leaf foliage that is attractive all by itself, would be covered in small golden daisies through summer. After moving to Texas, we tried it again, and were pleased to find that it overwintered here, coming back into bloom by March. The plant combines well with blue annuals - we've grown it between phacelia campanularia and dracocephalum moldavicum, where it's like a yellow exclamation mark between two blobs of clear blue.
