Chrysactinia mexicana

Damianita Daisy


Native to the south facing, rocky slopes of New Mexico and Texas, Damianita Daisy puts on a flush of yellow flowers like no other. The small, needlelike foliage gives off a sweet aroma that bursts into daisy-like flowers from spring until fall. Tolerating considerable drought, most soil types, and extreme temperatures, this tough, evergreen shrub fits easily into a variety of garden situations.
