Four Nerve Daisy
Tetraneuris scaposa var. scaposa
Four-nerve Daisy is a low, upright, silvery perennial growing from a woody base. The solitary stem is much-branched at the bottom, forming a clump with the solitary flower at the end of silky, leafless stalks. The tip of each yellow-ray flower is three-toothed, and four dark purple veins are visible on both sides of the ray. Disk flowers are yellow, with long, narrow, silvery-green leaves crowded mostly toward the base.
Flower petals become reflexed with age and remain on the for an extended period, and the flowers have an unpleasant odor when picked. The stems are not densely woolly among proximal leaves
