This striking plant is the only one of its genus, Engelmannia, which honors the German-American botanist George Engelmann (1809-1884) who classified over 100 native species of western North America. The species name “pinnatifida” and common name “Cut-leaf Daisy” both refer to the distinctive pinnately lobed foliage of this plant. Because of its drought tolerance and persistent bloom in heat, this daisy often grows as a roadside plant or for erosion control. It also provides forage for livestock, deer, and rabbits, while birds love its seeds. This daisy is extremely common in the state of Texas, where carpets of it bloom during the spring.
