Sanvitalia procumbens is a cheery Mexican annual with delicate zinnia-like flowers. Since its soft hair stems quickly sprawl and become prostrate, creating a strong carpet of bright foliage, it's ideal for growing in hanging baskets and containers. It's also a great option for edging sunny beds and roads. In full sun, it grows well in average, dry to moderately moist, and well-drained soils.
