Previous Next Noted for its drought tolerance and wonderfully aromatic foliage, Chrysactinia mexicana Damianita is a showy evergreen shrub forming a low, bushy mound of aromatic, narrow, needle-like, dark green leaves. Blooming profusely in spring and fall, then on and off during the high summer heat, attractive golden yellow daisies, 1 in. Borne singly at the top of slender stems, the flower heads feature 8 narrow rays surrounding a small yellow central disk.
Tough, heat, cold and drought tolerant, Damianita creates a brilliant, yellow carpet when massed. An excellent border plant, it is also very useful as a ground cover for erosion control on slopes and terrific in desert or rock gardens. Grows up to 2 ft. Thrives in full sun in dry, well-drained soils. Tolerates poor soil.
Good soil drainage is critical. Supplemental water in summer promotes more bloom. Excellent choice for beds and borders, prairies and meadows, as a ground cover for hillsides or hot exposed areas. Robust, low maintenance, pest and disease free, Damianita is also drought tolerant and deer resistant. Prune lightly after flowering to shape plant. Sow seed in spring, or take softwood cuttings in summer. Native from New Mexico, Texas.
