Fremontodendron 'California Glory'

fremontodendron ( syn. Californian Glory )

RHS award of garden merit
3 litre pot £32.99
  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: poor to moderately fertile, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to October
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (needs winter protection)

    Eyecatching, saucer-shaped, buttercup yellow flowers appear from May to October among lobed, dark green leaves. This long-flowering, evergreen shrub provides a pretty backdrop for a shrub or mixed border, especially among other hot colours. A particularly vigorous variety, it's best grown against a warm, sunny wall, sheltered from cold, drying winds.

  • Garden care: Wear stout gardening gloves and protective goggles when handling this plant, as contact with the foliage and shoots can cause skin irritation. In late winter or early spring remove any misplaced, diseased or crossing branches. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant after pruning.
