A few of these hardy, drought tolerant perennials can still be found on dry, rocky, caliche and clay hills around Texas and northern Mexico. Short, full, bushy plants seem to thrive when grown in better soils, but need good drainage. Though the rough leaves discourage grazing animals, the flowers attract many pollinators.

The seeds are an excellent source of nutrition for game and songbirds. This fantastic xeriscape plant grows from seed to full bloom in about 60 days. Blooms spring, summer and fall.

Lesser American Goldfinches absolutely love Bush Sunflower! (above)
