mock heather

Native to sand dunes from Long Beach north to Bodega Bay, this low shrub resembles a heather, covered with clusters of small yellow daisies in late summer and fall. Reaching a height of up to 3 feet and spreading to 4 feet, making it an ideal shrub for the smaller garden. Needs occasional water in interior locations and full sun to light shade. Requires well-draining soil. Plant with Ceanothus, low manzanitas and pacific reed grass for a taste of the coast in your own garden.Excellent late season nectar source for bees and butterflies. A light winter pruning will help keep it dense and compact. Said to be deer resistant.
