(aka: Dyssodia tenuiloba) We are in love with the long-flowering Thymophylla pentachaeta var. pentachaeta 'Laredo Gold', which graces us with masses of gold flowers from spring through fall, in our sunny, dry rock garden. This Texas/Arizona native is one of the showiest summer flowering plants we grow. This 2023 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of a Patrick McMillan collection comes from a population in Texas. Not only is this short-lived, southwestern US native, reseeding perennial great in flower, but the Native American Navajo tribe also used it as a hallucinogen for people who want to dream of being chased by deer....we are not making this up! Good drainage is the key for success.
