Bush Anemone

Carpenteria californica

The sparkling white flowers of bush anemone will cool down the hottest afternoon. An evergreen shrub native to California, it is a great plant for the back of a perennial border or an informal hedge. Bush anemone grows well in full sun or part shade and tolerates a range of soil conditions but does best in well-drained soil. It thrives on neglect: do not fertilize, and water only during periods of extended drought.
