Biennial native with daisy-like, orange-yellow rays with a domed chocolate center disk. Blooms atop stiff upright stems. Both stems & leaves are coated in fine hairs, explaining the name hirta, meaning hairy.
Grows in a wide range of soils from average, to medium, to moist, well-drained soils, & is also tolerant to clay.
When planted in a mass, self-seeding will promote overlapping bloom time. It is possible for plants to show blooms every year.
