This perennial is native to rocky slopes and dry mesas across the Southwest, at elevations from 4000 to 7000 feet. It forms a compact, dense mound of slender green grass-like leaves. Golden daisy-like blossoms perch above the foliage on tall, leafless stems during the warm months. Plants will bloom nearly year-round in lower elevation sites. Plant in full sun and well-drained soil. Shear off dried seed heads periodically to initiate new flower production. It can reseed in the landscape.
