About This Plant

Perennial, less than 1 foot. Does well in rocky soil in full sun. Common in parks, medians and even a few yards in northern Bexar County. Foliage and flowers are ephemeral appearing for a brief period after summer and fall rains. Not common in the nursery trade; conserve if possible to add a pop of color to lawns and flowerbeds.
