Plants that love cool spring evenings...

While Euryops (Euryops pectinatus), or yellow bush daisy, struggles through the dog days of summer here in Central Texas - it bursts forth with perky little blooms when nights and days are cooler here in late fall and early spring. 

In this raised bed with good soil, this one is in its third year -- done with sleeping and creeping and leaping into a beautiful plant.  In addition to being showy right now, it's clearly working hard to compete with the monster Franzosinii agave.  And with a mature height of 4-6 feet, it will likely soon have to find a new home somewhere else in the garden where it can be the focal point.
