US native. From rosettes of gray-green strap-like foliage, flower stems rise three feet with unusually shaped yellow ray flowers with a brown central disk. We like how perfect and glossy the foliage re-emerges in early spring. By their third year, the plants are strong and flower up a storm.

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