Description

California
Native

Coyote brush is native to California, and groundcover varieties are available. Very tolerant of varied soil, climate, and regional conditions. Groundcovers form dense foliage mats.

‘Pigeon Point’ is a low growing form of the native coyote bush. It is a male selection and doesn’t make seed. Extremely drought tolerant along the coast but best with moderate to occasional summer water inland. Forms a dense mounding cover. Tolerant of a wide range of soils but well-drained is best. Can be sheared in late winter to make more dense.

Excellent erosion control and groundcover. Tolerant of a wide range of soils but well-drained is best. Can be sheared in late winter to make more dense. Grows 1-3 ft tall, 6-10 foot spread. Offers excellent cover to a variety of wildlife. Deer resistant.
