DetailsEngelmann's Daisy (Engelmannia peristenia) is a widespread native wildflower enjoyed for its summer-long display of golden-yellow flowers. Engelmann's Daisy is a tough, resilient perennial that thrives in a wide range of climates and growing conditions. It is particularly useful in hot, poor soil planting conditions where it thrives with minimal care. It appreciates supplemental watering during dry spells. Will re-seed itself and naturalize when happy. (Photos courtesy of Pat Hayward)

Q & A

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).
