Loads of deliciously scented, 6-8” spikes rock the house from Spring till mid-Summer on this California coastal native, attracting butterflies & bumblebees galore. Quickly growing to a substantial 4’ x 4,’ it’s multi-branching with a stout tree-like trunk. Deer resistant & tolerant of drought & neglect, it’s an excellent choice for dry gardens, parking strips and hillsides. Definitely provide good drainage and throw in some lava rock if you’re going to plant it in a well watered garden. Cut back to 3’ x 3’ in Fall/Winter to keep a nice bushy shape. Cut flowers! Woo-hoo! Self-sows.
