Bidens ferulifolia

Asteraceae (Compositae)
Annuals, Perennials

Native to southern U.S., Mexico, Guatemala. The species grows to 3 ft. tall and wide, but the forms most commonly seen are trailing. Bright green leaves are divided into threadlike segments. Flower heads are bright golden yellow, an inch or so wide, with fewer ray flowers than most daisies and a light honey fragrance. Plants bloom almost continually during mild weather. Extremely heat tolerant. Can be aggressive, clambering into or sprawling over their neighbors; if this happens, just cut them back (they recover quickly).
