Layia Overview

This genus comprises around 14 species of erect annuals, often found in the grassy meadows and moist woodlands of W. USA and N.W. Mexico. Flowers are usually white or yellow in colour, with three-toothed petals. Their daisy-like flowerheads makes them a popular choice for hot, dry borders or on banks.
