Another desert native that is a gorgeous foundational shrub for your wildlife landscapes. A mounding shrub with large, lance-shaped, gray leaves contrasts with the bright yellow daisy-like flowers produced in the spring. It is extremely drought tolerant but in irrigated landscapes, it may become quite lush and larger than plants existing on rainfall. Do not over-water as they may rot out or become short-lived. Plant in full sun and provide good drainage.
