A 3 ft perennial with green-brown stems and green leaves. Very fast in wet-moist places. Baja to Humboldt and the Central Sierra. Baccharis species are the nectary sources for most of the predatory wasps, native skippers(small butterflies) and native flies. You will see the weirdest bugs on these plants. From green beetles to 1 inch long flies with short wings and no middle to their body, these plants sing. I highly recommend these plants next to a back sitting area(they do not look good enough in the foreground) to attract wildlife. Moreover, Bambi does not eat them!! They are great startups for bad sites.
