Crossosoma californicum is 3-5' semi-evergreen unless under stress, then becomes an unbecoming perennial. Native to the Channel Islands and the Palo Verde Peninsula. 1" white flowers from January to June. A tough plant for coastal California. Not cold hardy, frost damage at 25 F., death at 20 F. Older plants will crown back after cold snap, as long as it's not too cold. Catalina rockflower froze out of here. A rare plant. Picture's old and mangy because we last grew this plant in 1984.
