Engelmannia peristenia, also known as Engelmann's Daisy, produces bright yellow daisies from late spring to fall. The blooms open in the afternoon and stay open into the night, eventually fading in the heat of day. Its attractive, cut, fuzzy, green foliage, up to 10" at the base, gradually gets smaller higher on the stems.
Engelmann's Daisy is native to the Great Plains of North America. Engelmannia peristenia is a good erosion control plant and is a great choice for pollinator gardens.
Engelmannia peristenia prefers full sun and average, well-drained soil. This perennial will tolerate a wide range of climates and growing condition. It is drought tolerant but appreciates extra water during dry spells. This uncommon flower deserves more use in the landscape.
