Native plant profile: the ever-blooming sea daisy
Last updated 2/21/2008 at Noon
Year ’round color is one of those garden desires that can only be achieved in Southern California and other climates with mild winters. But truly ever-blooming plants are rare both among exotics and natives.
While the best strategy to achieve year ’round flower color is to use a range of plants, some of which will be winter bloomers, there are a few special native plants that bloom in every season, hot to cold.
Most surprising of these is a daisy that, yes, usually occurs in nature immediately next to the ocean: the Wayne Roderick Sea Daisy.
This interesting hybrid is a low evergreen...
