Tips On Growing Hymenoxys (Sundancer Daisy)
Hymenoxys (Sundancer Daisy) is a genus of native wildflowers native primarily to the Western US. They are completely rabbit and deer resistant.
Preferred growing conditions:
- Plant in a fast draining, infertile soil with full sun. Don't plant in clay soils.
- Mulch with gravel or not at all.
- Water regularly the first growing season to establish the plant. There after, infrequent but deep watering is all this plant needs.
- Deadheading helps to keep the foliage looking tidy, but may not extend the flowering season.
- Fertilize lightly in the fall with Yum Yum Mix.
- Hymenoxys can be short-lived perennials and should be encouraged to re-seed themselves by leaving some seed heads on the plants and mulching with small diameter gravel mulch.
- Hymenoxys are generally tap-rooted perennials and should not be divided.
- Many have evergreen foliage that should not be cut back. Trimming off the old flowering stems is sufficient to keep the plants looking good.

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).
