Yellowcomet  - Product Image


Price:  $6.99 

Mentzelia veatchiana, Yellowcomet, also called Veatch's Blazing Star is a gorgeous spring wildflower native to the Mojave desert, and is found from 1300 to 6200 feet. It is in the same family as the beautiful "Blazing Star," and spreads long stems, bearing numerous flowers and may reach 12" high. If soil is allowed to dry in between watering once established, this plant will bloom well into summer, If left to it's own, until fall, it should re-seed itself.

This is a hardy plant which requires full sun and gritty soil with good drainage.

Desert tortoises sometimes seek this species during the springtime months.
