Granted, not the best picture ever, but I wanted to post about it because this plant is actually a common garden plant – and a native.  It’s readily available in commercial garden centers, is easy to grow, drought-tolerant, attracts butterflies and birds, has fine-textured dark green foliage and long-lasting perky yellow flowers… what’s not to love?
