Planting Considerations: Consider planting with Sandhill wireweed (Polygonum nesomii), Black seeded needle grass (Piptochaetium avenaceum), Splitbeard bluestem (Andropogon ternarius), Wild buckwheat (Eriogonum tomentosum), Pityopsis sp., Scrub blazing star (Liatris tenuifolia), and Clusterleaf blazing star (Liatris laevigata).

Field Notes: Sunny yellow ray florets surround orange disks that resemble honeycomb when they’ve become mature seed heads. Honeycomb head completes its life cycle in one or two years. If it is to continue in the landscape by reseeding, it will need bare, open sandy areas to do so.
