More Information About Vigethia
Vigethia is a little-known monotypic (only one species) genus native to northeastern Mexico. Prior to 1943, the sole species, Vigethia mexicana, was in the genus Wyethia but was moved into its own genus because it is a woody subshrub unlike the herbaceous wyethia. Vigethia is extremely rare in cultivation, but there is no reason for it to be. Vigethia is an attractive, easy-to-grow perennial for sun or part sun that produces large numbers of pale yellow, daisy-like flowers during the warm parts of the year.
Try combining vigethia with contrasting colored plants such as agapanthus, buddleia, or erythrina, or consider contrasting vigethia's thick fuzzy leaves against the smooth leaves of an agave or manfreda.
