Native Plants go the Distance!

Native plant Abutilon palmeri

Native plant Abutilon palmeri

Abutilon palmeri asks little in return for masses of bright gold flowers produced nearly year round, set in a backdrop of downy, heart-shaped leaves. Once established, you can practically forget about watering it. In fact, it resents over watering.

Versatile, hardy beauty!

The free-flowering A. palmeri, also known as Palmer’s Indian mallow, has much to offer, especially when water is scarce:
