We originally got our plant from Georgia plantsman, Ozzie Johnson, but evidently it had been passed around for years by Gulf Coast plantsmen. For us, Calylophus 'Texas Sun' makes a 4'+ wide patch of wiry stems, clothed in pencil lead-thin green leaves. The patch is sporadically covered with bright yellow sundrop-like flowers all summer, making it one of the longest flowering perennials we grow. Although we received this as Calylophus drummondii, dueling plant keys in numerous Texas floras have left us thinking it must be a natural hybrid, hence the cultivar name.
