Native Pollinator Plant.
Sure, this plant is as tough and tolerant as the species and has all its attributes including its ability to perform well in dry areas and sun or partial shade, its dense form, its late spring/early summer nectar filled yellow flowers that native insects prize and its dry fruit capsule that attracts many birds in the fall and winter. So why grow it if the species is so good?? Your questions will be answered the first time you see this plant unfurl its new foliage with a colorful blast of coppery-red color that adds a great dimension to an already underrated yet great little shrub. Plant it in groups and then forget it because its tolerant nature allows this native to thrive and continue to please year after year.
