Barbara's Buttons, a member of the daisy family and an endangered plant in Tennessee, is fairly rare throughout its range in the floodplains of the southeast where it grows on sunny stream banks and in bogs. The plants form 10 inch clumps of evergreen, glossy, bright green leaves. In early to mid summer, 18 inch flower stalks support solitary 1 1/4 inch flower heads of tubular pinkish-mauve daisy florets which last for a couple of weeks. The plant should be grown in sun or light shade in moist places with good soil. When happy, they will naturalize readily by seed.
