Tetraneuris scaposa (Four-Nerve Daisy)

Four-nerve Daisy, Hymenoxys, Stemmy Four-nerve Daisy, Yellow Daisy, Perky Sue, Bitterweed, Hymenoxys scaposa


A small southwestern native, Tetraneuris scaposa (Four-Nerve Daisy) is a compact, clump-forming, evergreen perennial forming a mat of small, grassy, blue-green leaves. Blooming throughout the year under the right conditions, with peaks in spring and early summer, masses of cheerful yellow daisy flowers to 1 in. (2.5 cm) are carried singly on silky, leafless stems a few inches above the foliage mound. Butterflies are attracted to the blossoms, but deer tend to avoid them. Tough, heat and drought tolerant, Four-Nerve Daisy is particularly desirable because it blooms often throughout the winter months. Ideal for sunny rock gardens, borders, containers and is a perfect species for xeric gardens.

  • Grows up to 8-12 in. tall (20-30 cm) and 12 in. wide (30 cm). Self-sows mildly.
  • Thrives in full sun in drywell-drained soils. Good soil drainage is critical. Will not tolerate wet, waterlogged conditions. Intolerant of pollution.
  • Excellent choice for beds and borders, rock gardens, containers or as a ground cover.
  • Robust, low maintenance, pest and disease free. Susceptible to root rot in poorly drained soils.
  • Propagate by seed or division. This plant has a relatively significant taproot and will not transplant.
  • Native from Colorado to Kansas, south to New Mexico and Texas.
