Horticultural Notes

to 12”          Golden Pentachaeta is one of the star performers in California’s spring flower show. This small annual has narrow linear leaves and slender stems topped with bright golden yellow flowers. I have seen fields of these in the Laguna meadows that stop you in your tracks. As so often happens it’s the quantity of blooms not their size that makes the show.
