Golden Alexander- Native
Golden Alexander features flattened heads of small yellow flowers that bloom in late spring to early summer. These delicate blooms rest atop thick, glossy foliage. Golden Alexander is a member of the carrot family but can be distinguished by the absence of a flower stalk on the central flower of each umbel. It is a host plant for the black swallowtail butterfly. Beautiful choice for perennial and open woodland gardens. Use in butterfly gardens. Adds good texture and color contrast in a native garden. Will do well in an area where it can naturalize. Can be used in dried flower arrangements.
Zizia aurea should be grown in Full to Part Sun. It will grow 12-20″ tall with a spread of 20-24″. Plant in zones 3 to 8. Drought tolerant. Attracts butterflies. Can reseed heavily in optimal conditions.
