Those of you who live inland, can grow things we can’t along the coast. The species itself is native to the Coast Ranges of California and the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. inch flowering stems will begin to form on each shrubby clump, and by late May the wands of small, snapdragon-like flowers will almost obscure the foliage, and the display will continue throughout all of June.
