While the hard-working native can be found in the bottomlands and ditches of the coastal plain, extending from North Carolina to Florida and Louisiana, this attractive nectar-rich cultivar should be ushered into your garden. Each 3 to 4 in. wide primrose-yellow blossom hosts notched rays and a pincushion-like center of feathered disk florets. Blooming for nearly 4 months, the fluffy, cut-flower-perfect pastel-hued display tops erect leafy stems plus an evergreen rosette with pest-free lanceolate greenery. Undaunted by drought and heat, ‘Mary Gregory’ relishes sun, good drainage, moderate moisture and winter mulch in cold northern locales.
Size: 12" – 18" high x 18" – 2' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 5.
