Calylophus serrulatus Prairie Lode Sundrops Plant Select
This vigorous native prairie species is spangled for months on end with four-petaled, bright and cheerful yellow blossoms which emerge from large, orange buds. Tolerates a wide range of situations and thrives in hot, dry conditions. 'Prairie Lode' was selected by Bluebird Nursery in Clarkson, Nebraska for its compact habit.

Tips from the pros: Plant in well-drained alkaline soils and avoid amending with organic matter. Can be marginally hardy if not well established before cold weather. Protect with extra mulch in winter and cut back to ground each spring for best performance.
