Yellow Sundrops

I got this cute little ground cover last Fall at Matilija Nursery out in Moorpark.  It's worth a visit.  The plant has been flowering since I got it. I am not kidding!  What a fabulous plant! It's a Western US  native called Calylophus berlanderiera or Sundrops.  I can never remember what it's called and always have to look it up.    It was in a 1 gal. can and is now 2' across.   Here it is in my garden next to my bottle border and a Mum, an Iris and a Narcissus.  Research says it will grow up to 1' tall and 3' wide. It likes full sun and well drained soil. It must love my sandy soil.

 And I just had to share a pic of me in my new Matilija t-shirt!  What a great design and I love the mint green shirt color!  Thanks Bob!

Happy Gardening!
