Plant Highlights

'Ken Taylor' offers all the stunning beauty of the Fremontodendron californica, but in a more compact form suitable for smaller gardens. This hybrid reaches about 5' high and spreads to about 8'. Attractive blooms of deep gold, with a darket orange outside adorn the shrub in spring and into summer. Leaves are deep green. Ideal for planting on slopes, where the soil drains well. This shrub will not need supplemental water after establishment. If possible, plant your Fremontodendron in late fall so that it is established before the summer, avoiding the danger of overwatering. The dry hairs on the leaves can be irritating to skin, so it is best to plant this away from high-traffic areas.
Fremontodendron 'Ken Taylor' was created by Ken Taylor of Aromas, California and is though to be a cross of Fremontodendron califronica ssp decumbens and Fremontodendron'California Glory'
