Gardeners' Notes:

Positive palmbob On Jul 14, 2006, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Good landscaping species here in southern California. And good for pots, too. Seems hardier than zone 10a... no problems in zone 9b. Moderately fast grower, will fill a pot in less than a year... but easy to prune out if crowding other plants. The unique yellow-orange color is a great contrast in sunny locations.

Not common in my area, I bought mine on ebay. Turns orange with lots of sun, little water. seems to multiply well. I love this plant. My plant is a year old as of this writing. Highly recommend.

The leaves are longer and more narrow than S. adolphii.
They will turn orange with good sun and little water. Suitable for rock gardens, baskets, dishgardens, ground cover, mass plantings. So is S. adolphii. These are frequently available at nurseries. Low's. WalMart. Enjoy
