Gardeners' Notes:

Positive anneh2008 On Nov 10, 2010, anneh2008 from Santa Monica, CA wrote:

beautiful plant with yellow flowers year round. Grows well in sandy, well-drained sunny soil. Looks nicer with a little water, but survives with no water at all. Wonderful CA native. Grows easily from seed available from most any native nursery. Re-seeds, but is not invasive.

This plant has been tricky for me. Propagates easily and has been started in several areas of the yard to see where it will thrive. Seems to do best in sunny well-drained sandy loam where it receives weekly water runoff.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Martinez, California
Santa Monica, California
