Tetraneuris acaulis is a North American species of flowering plants in the sunflower family. Common names include angelita daisy, stemless four-nerve daisy, stemless hymenoxys, butte marigold, and stemless rubberweed. Tetraneuris acaulis is widespread across much of the western and central United States, It grows in a variety of habitat types in foothills and subalpine regions, and high prairie, badlands, and plains.
Bright eyed, fragrant yellow daisy blossoms continue to bloom and rebloom almost year-round. Extremely drought tolerant, perfect for xeriscapes, alpine and rock gardens. Preferring full sun and rocky, average to dry soil, this compact upright grower gives loads of color with little effort. A great nectar source for native insects and butterflies.
