This plant forms a low mound, with a mature height around two feet and a spread of four feet.
It can be a bit tricky to establish, and once in the ground it will take its time growing. Still, it’s a good, compact variety with an early blooming season.
We’ve seen bumblebees visit the flowers, and it’s listed as a good pollen plant for insects.
U.C. Davis selected this plant as an Arboretum All-Star. Even though C. maritimus is native to the central coast region, it seems to at least tolerate conditions in the Central Valley.
