I'm having a hard time getting information about the annual, gold button pentzia. I need to know soil and fertility requirements, what zones it grows best in, watering requirements and the like. I've had no luck with most of the online encyclopedias and turn to your expertise -- thanks so much.

Gold Button Pentzia is an annual plant, growing 24" tall with 3/4 inch golden-orange button-type flowers, which are good for fresh or dried flower arrangements. The plant grows in full sunshine in average to dry soils. It's drought-tolerant and is often grown in rock gardens. As an annual, it will grow in all gardening regions without special care. Hope this answers all your questions!
