California gold! The Butterscotch yellow daisies of this Southern California wildflower sweeten the Spring garden, especially when paired with blue flowering friends. What’s a sea of blue without a little bit of yellow? Try it with Gilias, Phacelias, or Nemophila ‘Baby Blue Eyes’ & you’ll see! Blooms mid through late Spring with 1’ or taller stems over a 8-10” mound of ferny leaves. Each sunny bloom is around 1.5” across. Attractive to pollinators & good cut!
