Desert Marigold and Texas Yellowstar include only four species from rocky, dryish, sunny sites in South-Western United States through to Mexico. They have numerous showy, bright yellow flowers above deeply lobed, greyish-green leaves in a dense basal rosette (Baileya) or elongated, hairy leaves on losely branching stems (Lindheimera). All are easily cultivated in any rich, well drained, slightly rocky or sandy soil in full sun. Ideal for the rock garden.
Sow flat in any rich, well drained soil. Keep pots in a sunny, protected spot outside. Transplant as soon as seedlings are strong enough.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
