Zexmenia is a lovely, no hassle addition to any sunny or partly sunny garden. It actually is a small shrub with its lower stem becoming woody with age.

Zexmenia is a heat-loving plant that produces yellow/orange flowers on and off late spring through fall. It thrives in rocky soils, but it is adaptable as long as the soil is well-draining. It is long-lived, drought tolerant and easy to grow. It may be trimmed periodically to shape or promote denser growth. Too much water or shade will make it leggy.
