Cheery melampodium has sunshine-yellow flowers on deeply green leaves. It's a mainstay for hot, sunny spots, where it will produce a profusion of yellow daisy-shape blooms all summer. While it likes heat and sun, it doesn't like dry conditions. It must be kept moist, or it will wither and likely not recover.
Melampodium is an excellent plant for containers or in the front of the border (especially in slightly soggy soil). Its tidy growth habit makes it a good pick for edging, too. Plant it outdoors after all danger of frost has passed.
