peak rushrose

An interesting and little known member of the rockrose family, found in disturbed areas of chaparral, especially abundant after fires. Smooth, rush-like, green stems, lacking obvious leaves with age, grow 6 - 20 inches tall and wide. Summer brings an abundance of little, cheerful, bright-yellow blossoms. Perfect rock garden item or planted with other dryland species such as manzanita, California lilac or native sages. Plant in full sun with good drainage, where it will be very drought tolerant once established. Tolerant of serpentine soils too.
