Fremontodendron 'California Glory'

Fremontia, Flannel Bush

These small drought-tolerant trees or shrubs look beautiful in hillside plantings, especially when mixed with other plants that need little water. Leathery, dark green leaves have feltlike undersides. Yellow saucerlike flowers are followed by long-lasting conical seed capsules. Start by seed or softwood cuttings. Stake young plants because of shallow root system. In frost areas, plant against a wall. Overwatering kills or shortens their life span.
