5" tall x 8" wide. Hymenoxys scaposa (Thrift-Leaf Perky Sue) is a wonderful everblooming yellow daisy that is both heat loving and drought tolerant. The foliage is evergreen and looks just like Armeria. A vigorous re-seeder, it quickly colonizes harsh areas of the garden. Perky Sue loves gravel mulch. We use it to interplant with cold hardy cacti. Provide lean, well-drained soil. Once established Hymenoxys scaposa is very xeric, needing little extra water. (seed propagated)
