Texas Yellowstar

Cheerful yellow daisylike flowers decorate this southeastern North American native in spring. It blooms for several weeks in March through May, depending on location. Native to Texas, Oklahoma, and several states in the Southeast, it is easily grown from seed scattered on the soil in fall. Plant low-growing Texas yellowstar near the front of the border; it tolerates a variety of soils and handles drought like a champion. After the flowers fade, its slightly fuzzy leaves add a welcome splash of green to the garden for weeks. It will reseed.
