Baccharis pilularis - Dwarf Coyote Brush
Great for covering large areas, Dwarf Coyote Brush is a dense groundcover that grows to about 12 inches high with a spread of up to 12 feet. Spacing plants too closely will result in a taller groundcover as plants grow over each other. This California native plant loves full sun and is tolerant of heat, drought and coastal conditions. It's also fire-resistant for defensible space.
