Plant Highlights

This hardy, very drought resistant ground-cover provides reliable, dark green foliage year round. 'San Nicolas' is a prostrate selection of Adenostema fasciculatum from San Nicolas Island. White flower clusters cover the tips of the branches in early summer, providing a nectar source for butterflies. Use this plant in full sun in coastal areas and part sun inland. Useful on slopes as an attractive soil stabilizer, or in rock gardens where the dark green leaves look great contrasted with the granite rocks, or in dry borders or beside walkways. Provide well-draining soil and expect growth to stay under 1' in height and 3' -5' spread.This plant is ideal for small spaces.
San Nicolas Prostrate Chamise was selected from San Nicolas Island and introduced by Tree of Life Nursery.
