The SCVN A Naturalist’s Guide To Sabino Canyon states:

Quarter-sized bright yellow composite flowers with 3-6 petals on bushy plants to 2 ft.
Thin, lance-shaped, gray-green leaves with white hairs. Blooms most reliably Apr-Jun. 
Fun Fact: Flowers fade to white and stay on long after blooming.

These plants are still providing much color this fall in Sabino Canyon.
