The Blackfoot Daisy’s Genus name is Melampodium and the species name is leucanthum. The scientific name is Melampodium Leucanthum. This plant needs full sun to grow and doesn’t need a lot of water. This plant should be in our garden because bees, butterflies, and birds will be provided food and shelter. The bees could produce more pollen so that more plants can be grown and be more healthy.
