Description A southeastern Arizona species found In hot, exposed locations. Often found in disturbed sites such as roadsides, grazing areas, or vacant lots. This species can be recognized by its thin cleft leaves with resinous glands, as well as its yellow blooms which appear in the late summer/fall. This species lends itself well to revegetation or planting in lightly managed areas at the margins of a property. This is certainly a drought tolerant plant, and its flowers serve as a good late season nectar source for butterflies and bees.
