Damianita Daisy (Chysactiana mexicana)
Bright daisy-like flowers adorn this small, compact shrub in spring and fall. The Damianita Daisy (Chysactiana mexicana) is a very tough, durable plant that can tolerate extreme heat and cold. It is most commonly used in commercial settings because of it’s extreme durability but makes a great little accent in residential desert landscapes.
The Daianita Daisy prefers to be planted in full sun with well-drained soil. Light shearing in late spring will remove the old flower heads and encourage new growth.
