Thymophylla tenuiloba

Short-lived perennial usually grown as an annual. Heat-loving plant native from Texas to Florida and Mexico. Mounding growth to 1 ft. tall and 1/2 ft. wide. Divided, thread-like leaves make a dark green background for flowers that look like miniature golden marguerites (Anthemis). Blooms from early summer to fall. Use for mass display or pockets of color. When plants become ragged with age, pull them out. In warm-winter areas, can be planted in fall for winter-to-spring bloom.
