Showstar Melampodium

Yellow Melampodium

Melampodium Showstar is a compact plant, exploding in dainty yellow flowers that excels in dry or poor soils. Producing flowers all summer long and surviving drought and heat exposure makes Melampodium a solid investment for any garden.

In southern locations with high heat you might want to plant it in an area that gets a little more shade.  It won’t die, but it might droop and look miserable during the heat of the day. A word of caution, they can reseed and sometimes in abundance.  So choose a location where your Melampodium can have room to spread or simply pull up the seedlings.
