|This compact annual grows from 2 to 18 inches tall, and blooms in the
afternoons from Spring to frost, depending on your location. It's abundant in
Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas. It also is found in southern parts of
Mississippi and Alabama, and the panhandle of Florida. Lazy Daisies love sandy
soil, but will grow happily in good garden soil as long as it's well drained.
This well-behaved plant makes a large, rounded mound of cheerful blossoms.
It's an especially nice plant for rock gardens or for the front of your flower
border. Also add them to a wildflower meadow or use them as a groundcover. In some areas white-tailed deer browse them throughout the year. They have a high crude protein content, so make an excellent addition to a wildlife habitat, too.
