This species of shrubby daisy is among the classic "roadbank plants" of California. It is mounding in habit, with grey-green lobed leaves and nearly white stems. The bright yellow daisy flower heads are nearly 2 inches broad. The cultivar 'Siskiyou' is especially vigorous and floriferous, spreading quickly and producing sunshine yellow flowers for a long period in spring and summer. Best with full exposure, well drained soil, moderate to infrequent watering when established.
