Wandering along Wild Basin and run into some of these white and yellow beauties?
Well, these flowers are called Melampodium leucanthum, or “Blackfoot Daisies.” They generally bloom from March until late October and are native to Texas! They grow in meadows, plains, prairies, and dry substrates. They require sun and/or partial shade, and grow between 1-3 feet tall.
Blackfoot Daisies can withstand the blistering heat as well as freezing temperatures. They also attract butterflies and moths, and even provide food for birds and other animals. Additionally, Blackfoot Daisies make great rock garden plants.
