Named for its green, thread-like foliage, this dependable bloomer
shows its golden heads throughout the year after adequate rainfall.
Often found growing in shallow soils, the ripened seeds are a food
source for the multi-colored painted bunting. It does not appear to
be favored by deer. Also a good larval and nectar plant for
butterflies. The crushed leaves have a pleasant aroma and have been
used for tea. Found as far north and east as Arkansas across to
Colorado and down to Mexico.
