Add long-lasting color to the dry or desert garden with Engelmann's daisy. The eight-petal yellow flowers have a striking dark center and nearly cover the mounding 2-foot-tall perennial. Count on the flowers to open late in the day after the intense afternoon heat passes. They will remain open until the following day, when they will close in early afternoon. Birds invariably are attracted to the plant's seeds, making it a top pick for Southwestern wildlife gardens. Plant this easy-to-grow perennial with other low-water bloomers for a color show in xeric landscapes.
It's native to areas of central and southwestern North America.
