Flannel bush. San Gabriel flannel bush is a robust evergreen shrub to 20 feet tall and 40 wide. Fast growing, it will tolerate extremely dry conditions and hotter interior garden sites. It features a copious display of 2-3 inch yellow flowers from early spring to summer and a distinctive herringbone branching pattern. An excellent choice for screens and dry banks, it should be sited away from foot traffic to avoid the irritating stellate hairs common on the fuzzy olive-green leaves. Hardy to 15F.
