Meadowfoam

Limnanthes douglasii

Carpet your perennial border, entryway planting bed, or patio garden with this easy-care, long-blooming annual. Meadow foam has glossy green foliage that spreads to form a neat and tidy, weed-suppressing mat. It is the perfect backdrop for the plant's yellow-and-white daisylike flowers. The fragrant blossoms perfume the air with a scent similar to that of daffodils for months in summer. This easy-to-grow annual also thrives in pots.

Plant meadow foam in full sun or part sun and well-drained soil. For best bloom, water weekly so it receives at least an inch of moisture a week. Meadow foam reseeds.
