Plant Highlights

This is a very hardy plant with really colorful flowers that resemble yellow daisy's. It received its name because of the milky white sticky substance covering the plant. It attracts butterflies as well as other native insects. It can even tolerate salty soil and deer don't affect it. Use where some bright color is needed in a coastal setting.
