Location

Native to Southwest North America. From Trans-Pecos and Rio Grande Plains and infrequent in the western part of the Edwards Plateau. This shrub can also be found in New Mexico and south and west to Durango, Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, and Tamaulipas counties in Mexico.

Physical Description
V. stenoloba forms a much branched, mounding shrub with a

moderate growth rate to 3 feet high and 2-3 feet wide. The leaves are dark green. Lower leaves are skeletal (sharp deep lobes) and are up to 2.5” long and 1.5” wide. Upper leaves tend to be linear. The yellow 1-2” daisy like flowers appear singly at the end of stalks intermittently through the summer and heavily in the fall. The center disk extends up to 1/3” above the petals. The flowers are followed by a small (1/8”) dry one seeded achene.

General Information

Medicinal Uses: The Navajo and Ramah peoples have specified a related species (Heliomaris longiflolia) as a ‘life medicine’

Food Uses: Seed. The Gosiute Indians formerly used the seeds for food

Cultivation: Plant it in lean, very well drained, alkaline soil in full to part shade although it does best here in full sun. In areas with clay soil, consider placing this shrub in a raised bed. It also does well in a deep pot and at the top of sloped areas.

Propagation: Gather the achenes as they turn brown and begin to shatter. Spread the achenes out to air dry then store in sealed container in the refrigerator until sowed. To propagate, scatter seed directly on lightly raked ground in late fall or winter and water well. You can also take 2-3” softwood cuttings after the first growth from April to June and again in August but cuttings are often difficult to get rooted.
