If you’ve hiked around the foothills in the Albuquerque area, chances are you’ve come across this cheerful native flower. Paperflower offers several seasons of interest. Masses of yellow flowers bloom from April through September and then fade back to a papery appearance that lasts through the winter. An excellent choice for gardens that rely mostly on rainwater, paperflower will thrive in sandy and gravelly soils.
