Low care shrub covered in yellow flowers throughout the growing season. It is popular as background plantings in wide borders, visual barriers, or foundation plantings (because they are easily pruned or sheared into a low hedge). They are root hardy to zone 8, but top growth may be killed by temperatures dipping below 30F – so I hope ours puts down some good roots during our warm season. Native to Central America.
We planted ours as a nice-looking smallish shrub in late May (photo at top left), and by early July (top right) it has not only grown a bit, but has also become even more floriferous.
In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: houston back yard
