Baileya multiradiata, commonly called Desert Marigold is a member of the Aster family, and native to the southwestern United States and to Mexico
Desert marigolds typically have their main bloom in the spring, extending through July. Summer thunderstorms may enable a second bloom in October and even into November.
Baileya species are used as food plants by the larvae of several species of insects, most importantly the Desert Marigold Moth (Schinia miniana.) For this species of moth larvae, Baylea is their sole food source.
For best results, this species should be planted in the ground, not into a container.
Desert marigold flowers are also enjoyed by tortoises.
