Greenthread (Green Thread)

Greenthread is a native, warm season annual or short-lived perennial wildflower that grows 1-3’ tall. It produces numerous yellow blooms with brown to reddish centers. The leaves are threadlike, thus the name of the plant. Greenthread is an excellent pollinator attractant and it will bloom throughout the spring, summer, and fall with good soil moisture. Greenthread is very drought tolerant and grows well on dry, rocky soils over limestone. It is one of the most common wildflowers over much of the Texas Hill Country. Deer do not readily browse the plant, making it a good choice for areas with high deer numbers.
