About This Plant

A reseeding wildflower. Appearing in winter as a distinct lettuce-like rosette of fuzzy, deeply lobed leaves, Lindheimer’s daisy begins growing swiftly in February. Blooms appear in March and continue throughout spring, with some of the first yellow-ray flowers of the year. Watch for it along roadways along with bluebonnets and Indian paintbrush. It can be easily grown in mulched garden beds as well.

Maintenance

Seed can be collected in May. Sow or scatter seed on bare soil in non-turf areas in November. Rosettes will grow slowly over winter, and quickly after February. The bloom season often lasts until summer. Once established, plants will reseed freely.
