Lyonothamnus floribundus ssp asplenifolius
I’ve been blogging a bunch of non-native shrubs this week. This is not one of them. This one is a California native tree.
Hap likes this tree. We don’t grow a lot of trees so you can bet someone at the nursery likes it if we carry it. It certainly has bright red bark and very green leaves.
Sun: Full to Moderate
Water: Low – keep dry
Quick growing. Peeling grey bark reveals new red bark. White flowers in summer. Well-drained soils, low water. Hardy to 20°.
