This easy to grow shrub grows 4 feet tall and 6 feet wide, forming large mats of dark greenish-grey leaves. The golden yellow flowers are profuse in spring. This plant is a coastal species, making it salt and wind tolerant. It also thrives inland, given a little summer water. Full sun is recommended. A fast growing plant, it is one of our best for erosion control in a coastal situation. Combines well with the low growing Coyote Bush, the larger Buckwheats, and Monkeyflower. It is an important food source for the San Bruno Elfin butterfly. Deer resistant!
