Sol Dancer Daisy

Tetraneuris acaulis var. arizonica 'Sol Dancer'

Plant Details:

Plant Type: Perennial
Plant Family: Asteraceae
Plant Description: Cheerful and everblooming, Sol Dancer Daisy handles heat, drought and poor soils. Large, bright yellow blooms on sturdy stems appear in late spring and continue until frost. Foliage is grass-like, uniform and deer resistant. Sol Dancer prefers good drainage and appreciates a gravel mulch that encourages re-seeding. In order to encourage re-seeding, do not deadhead all spent blooms. Needs little water once established. A Utah State University Sego Supreme introduction. Also known as Four-nerve daisy.


Maintenance Type: Perennial - Evergreen
Plant Care: Perennial - Evergreen (soft-stemmed plants that keep their leaves and color during winter): Remove spent blooms to promote rebloom later. To avoid winter stress, wait until spring to identify what portions of the plant are still alive and then remove the rest.
