This is a Native California plant.
A perennial that grows right next to the ocean, on bluffs or the coastal sand spits.
The consistent variable seems to be the sea Salt spray keeps the plants a low 1 inch tall.
The flowers rise 2 inches tall.
If the plant is grown out of the wind or in the interior it will grow to 2 feet tall.
The foliage is fuzzy-fuzzy and greener than the other varieties and are much more finely serrated than the straight species.
