Plant Species of the genus Baccharis

Information about this genus
Name: Baccharis
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: Fully hardy to frost tender, these plants do best in good soil in full sun. Softwood cuttings should be taken in summer, while seed should be sown in spring.
Description: This genus belonging to the daisy family consists of approximately 350 species and is native to North, Central and South America. These shrub or herb perennials bear male and female flowers on separate plants; they are deciduous or evergreen. Some species have no leaves, so photosynthesis takes place in the adapted stems. The flowers are daisy-like and grow in corymbs or panicles. Some species are used to make dye and in medicine. They are often grown as ornamentals in coastal areas as they are salt air tolerant.
