Elegant Tarweed Seeds (Madia elegans) is a beautiful flowering plant that can add to a landscape garden and an annual wildflower from the sunflower family. It has small green leaves with sticky and hairy stalks with pleasantly aromatic oil and produces bright yellow flowers with a central red ring that catches the eye. The flowers are closed during the daytime and open late on the same day.

You can eat the seeds just like the sunflower seeds. It is native to the Pacific Northwest, where they thrive in full sun to partial shade and moist but well-drained soil. It can grow up to 18-24 inches tall. Growing them is easy and drought-tolerant once established.

Allow the soil to dry before watering them, and make sure there is an excellent draining hole in the pot to prevent root rot. Fertilizing them once a month during their growing season will help them bloom into a healthy one. The best way to propagate them is via seeds.


Beautiful yellow aster- like flowers, loved by many pollinators! Easy to direct seed; sprouts in 7-14 days. Full sun, medium to low water. Leaves and stalks are covered with sticky, fragrant hairs that give the plant the common name of “tarweed”.
Seeds collected from Eugene, OR. This species is found in Northern CA and OR.
