Foothills Plants that work at home (1)

Eriophyllum lanatum sm

Woolly Sunflower (Eriophyllum lanatum), also known as Oregon Sunshine, is blooming now in the lower foothills. There it grows in intensely hot, dry locations, as on this hillside. Bring this plant into the landscape, add just a little bit of water via drip irrigation, and you get one of the superstars of a native xeriscape. Voila!  6-2-15
