Baccharis Pigeon Point' grows into a one foot tall by twelve foot wide dark-green groundcover. This is the preferred form of Dwarf Coyote Brush for slope stabilization and landscaping in almost all areas. Plant from gallons six to ten feet apart for a two year or so fill-in.. If you plant close together they grow over each other and you end up with a higher groundcover. 'Pigeon Point' doesn't lose its bottom and seems to stay low and clean for at least ten to twelve years. Use this plant to cover large areas of ground in rural estates. Break up the plots with walks or colorful plants of compatible watering. (Ceanothus, Salvia and monkey flowers are great for this. ).Baccharis species are the nectary sources for most of the predatory wasps, native (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' with life. I highly recommend these plants next to a back sitting area to attract wildlife'. Moreover, Bambi doesn't eat them!! They're great startups for bad sites, and the deep green carpet is pleasant to the eye. Water about once every two weeks to wash the dust off of the foliage. Coyote Brush, like many native plants, hates dust.
