tiny posy from early December, and the curly, bronze foliage from my last post. Today it finally receives a bit of well-deserved attention in a post all its own.
Tetraneuris acaulis (formerly Hymenoxys acaulis) is quite a small plant. It is one of many dry climate natives that produce bright yellow daisies. But it has a unique charm with its low mat of foliage supporting the sturdy little blooms on long stems. This gives the whole plant an airy look.
Apparently this plant, flowers, and foliage can vary considerably in size and other characteristics. This specimen was not a named variety, but it is proving highly satisfactory. It is quite a cheerful little dry-climate subject!
