Details

The large, yellow daisies of the Hymenoxys acaulis v. ivesiana (Western Sundancer Daisy), a native wildflower, appear in late spring and again later in the summer with the summer rains. “What I enjoy most about variety ivesiana is that the cheerful flowers on every plant are a little different from the next, giving their planting a cheerful informality,” explained chief horticulturalist David Salman. The seeds for this collection were originally gathered in Western Colorado.

Comments about High Country Gardens Hymenoxys acaulis v. ivesiana:

Southwest gardening is a challenge with cement for soil, high drying winds in the spring through June, and deer and rabbits always looking for any "goodie". This plant is doing great so far. (This is the second year.) Am I supposed to dead-head it? Haven't seen anything on this. Can anyone help me? Would love to have it keep blooming for awhile.

    We just planted some of these xerics, and look forward to seeing if they establish as advertised. So far, they are taking well and have some blooms.

        USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

        To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

        • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
        • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
