Moderate to fast-growing evergreen shrub with a spreading growth habit to 2-5’ tall x 10-15’ wide. A relatively short-lived species to 15-20 years old, this popular and durable selection features attractive, sprawling gray-green foliage accented with powder-puff-like yellow flowers that appear near the branch tips late-winter to early-spring. Highly adaptable, growing from warm inland locations to coastal climates, this low-maintenance variety is especially well-suited as a large area, erosion-controlling groundcover for slopes and hillsides. Tolerates a variety of soil types (provided they’re well-drained), requires little water once established, and thrives in a full to partial sun exposure.
