Tidytips is commonly found in dry habitats in California, in the desert of Monjave and Utah. It is a beautiful specimen for collections and wild gardens.
This annual bicolor is also known by the common name egg-fried flower. The height of the whole plant hardly exceeds 30 cm, forming a beautiful carpet or colored dots on our lawn.
The yellow-gold coloration lined with pure white on its jagged petals, gives this species the status of commercial wild daisy in California.
Their seeds are a source of food for birds.
The species is demanding on soils that promote good drainage, free from waterlogging.
The species self-sows, year after year, to present us with its show in flowering. They are beautiful together with other species of contrasting colors forming indescribable beds, like a true magic garden.
