Narrowleaf Silkgrass

Pityopsis graminifolia


Although the leaves are grass-like (and despite the common name), this is not a grass. Lovely yellow flowers, semi-evergreen foliage, and drought-resistance make this native wildflower a good choice for xeriscaping, and native/natural/wildlife gardens.
