The Engelmann Daisy, scientifically known as Engelmannia Peristenia, is a delightful wildflower that graces gardens and natural landscapes with its sunny blooms. This perennial plant is native to the central and southern regions of the United States, and it’s known for its bright and cheerful daisy-like flowers.

 

Engelmann Daisy thrives in full to partial or dappled sun in most soil types. Engelmann Daisy should be given supplemental water at the time that it is first planted. After it is established, it is very drought tolerant, although supplemental water may extend flowering.

  • Sunlight: Plant in full sun for best results, as they require at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day.
  • Soil: Well-drained soil is essential to prevent waterlogged roots. They can adapt to a variety of soil types.
  • Watering: While they’re drought-tolerant once established, regular watering is crucial during the first growing season to help them establish deep roots.
