Heterotheca jonesii x villosa 'Goldhill'
Tufted grey "scatter rugs" of fuzzy foliage make dense mounds in a sunny garden, clothed all season long (from late winter to fall) with cheerful yellow daisies. This natural hybrid combines the dense habit of its rare parent (H. jonesii) with vigor of the more common H. villosa. 'Goldhill' is apparently sterile so won't seed around like its common parent. Prefers well-drained soil. Tips from the pros: This plant is mostly maintenance free. It will rebloom even without deadheading.
