The butterfly daisy often grows in thick stands long roads and on hillsides, forming an almost solid blanket of gold. These gorgeous flowers are native to the Americas.
The yellow to orange-yellow center is dome-shaped, and the disk flowers are velvety. The plant has a strong scent and attracts butterflies, bees and insects to collect its pollen.
