Anacyclus pyrethrum depressus

Mount Atlas Daisy
Asteraceae (Compositae)
Perennials, Flowers

Native to North Africa and Spain. This little charmer slowly forms a dense, spreading mat of finely divided, gray-green leaves; resembles chamomile (Chamaemelum). In summer, it bears many daisy-like flowers to 2 in. across, with yellow center disks and white rays (red on reverse side).

Good in sunny, dry, hot rock gardens. May freeze in severe winters or rot in cold, wet, heavy soil. Dislikes humidity. Not long-lived, but reseeds.
