Hymenolepis parviflora--Golden Coulter Bush

Blooming now at the UC Botanical Garden and available from Annie's Annuals. In her words,

"From South Africa comes this rare, base-branching shrub with soft, textural, green-green, needle-like foliage topped by umbels of densely held, golden-yellow flowers. EASY & FAST, it likes average to rich, well-drained soil. It’s a big girl - 4’ tall and 3’ wide. Perfect on dry hillsides, Mediterranean gardens & mixed plantings."
I am impressed by how well behaved this aster-family plant is. Nice structure, healthy looking foliage, bright beautiful flowers.
