detailed seed-starting info below

Blue-green composite leaves in alternate arrangement, bright yellow flowers with burgundy stamens. A pollinator favorite, and host to the sleepy orange and orange sulfur butterflies. As I hoped, the nursery-bought plants dropped plenty of seed, which germinated in March of the following year.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following areas: left fence border, houston front yard
