This California native's gray-green, deeply cut foliage and gold-centered, crepe-papery-white flowers will dazzle any onlooker. Yes, kind of like fried eggs, but that slightly dishonors this gorgeous flower. An egg should be so lucky. (Yes, okay, eggs are beautiful, too.) Its stature is grand—at least 4 feet tall and slowly spreading—and its large, pure white and yellow flowers will sparkle in the summer garden. Once established, no summer water! Most likely to succeed in VERY well-drained conditions. If your soil is heavy, consider creating a mound or berm with lots of gravel worked in.
Mature size: 4–8 feet T & spreading when well situated
Minimum temperature: 0° F
