    Considered a weed by some, the pretty little daisy-like wildflower blooms in April. It’s native to Texas and most of the U.S. and is found growing along roadsides and in fields and woodlands. Biennial or short-lived perennial plant grows up to 2½' and unbranched, except near the inflorescence. The pollen or nectar of the flowers attracts many kinds of insects, including long-tongued bees, short-tongued bees, wasps, flies, butterflies, skippers, beetles, Carpenter bees, Nomadine Cuckoo bees, Green Metallic bees and other Halictine bees, Eumenine wasps, Tachinid flies, and Thick-Head flies. Caterpillars of the Lynx Flower Moth eat the flowers and seed capsules.
