Orange zexmenia is a warm season perennial forb common across South Texas. The leaves are eaten by white-tailed deer and occasionally by cattle, and birds commonly eat the seeds. Orange zexmenia grows in small clumps and is often found in the protection of small shrubs. Seed can be produced in dry land settings at a rate of 60 pounds per acre. Seed should be broadcasted in late winter or early fall on a clean, weed free seedbed. It can also be propagated by semi-hardwood and softwood cuttings. Transplants or cuttings should be transplanted to the field in early-to-mid spring.
