Native to much of the U.S. Low-growing summer bloomers with daisy-like flowers in warm colors—yellow, bronze, scarlet. Plants thrive in heat and need good drainage. Easy to grow from seed and fine for cutting and borders; often reseed.

Much variation in flower color; range includes various warm shades of red and yellow, with orange or maroon bands. Exceptionally long bloom period for a perennial—early summer until frost. Plants flower the first year from seed.
