Neutral melody On Feb 17, 2005, melody from Benton, KY (Zone 7a) wrote:

Few short branches at the base and one short erect stem standing in dense thick racemes of bright orange-yellow flowers.

Found along the coastal dunes of the northeern two thirds of CA.

This lovely coastal wildflower forms low, conical mounds of solid golden-orange when in full bloom.
