General Description

Throughout the summer, lanceleaf tickseed provides a beautiful display of yellow daisies that are held high above the lance-like, medium green foliage of this plant. Flowers appear in early to midsummer and will continue blooming if spent blooms are removed. This tough and resilient composite is native throughout much of North America. Sun-loving and drought tolerant, this perennial prefers average, well drained soil and attracts many pollinators, such as bees and butterflies. It is well suited to wildflower and informal perennial gardens.
