Water Saving Tip:

Change spray sprinklers to low-flow bubbler or drip systems. Shrubs and trees are ideal candidates for this type of irrigation because the water is applied directly to the root zones.

  • Description

  • Notes

A moderately fast, low groundcover, grey fuzzy leaves with bright yellow daisies held above the foliage. Prefers light soil and good drainage and full sun to light shade. Allow plants to be irrigated in mornings so that foliage is dry at dusk. Tolerant and dependable for tough situations needing only some additional irrigation during the hottest seasons.
For Planting Instructions please refer to the Garden Resources Garden Care Section. Garden Resources can be found on the main menu.
