A rare gold variegated form of this California native is a Monrovia exclusive. Dramatic contrast between yellow in foliage and profuse blue flowers in spring, then variegation adds interest the rest of the year. Improved resistance to heat reduces risk of burning inland. Upright form makes high profile specimen against dark walls, as screen or single dramatic specimen. Insists on rapid drainage, not particular about fertility, and is best protected from hot afternoon sun as in its natural canyon habitat. Evergreen. Full sun to part shade. Slow growth to 8 feet tall and as wide.
Firescaping/Fire Wise, Seacoast Exposure
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, shear annually to shape.
