Tagetes lemmonii --Copper Canyon Daisy--

Gorgeous daisy from the Sonoran desert, heat and sun loving, and well suited to central Texas. Grows 4-6 feet tall, blooms at least spring and fall, and potentially all the way through summer, with tons of bright golden flowers. Drought-tolerant, cold-hardy below 20°, and attracts tons of bees and butterflies. All it wants is well drained non-acidic soil - don't overwater.
