Doronicum (Doronicum spp.)

Doronicum Plant Features

Perk up your early spring garden with doronicum. This cheerful, easy-care perennial produces bright yellow daisy-like flowers about the same time as tulips and daffodils burst into bloom. Each flower is borne on a sturdy stem held over a base of heart-shaped green leaves. The plants grow 12 to 18 inches tall and will eventually form small clumps throughout your garden. Doronicum spreads slowly, but is not invasive. Bees and butterflies will thank you for an early food source. Doronicum is also deer resistant. Hardy from zones 4-7.
