Add a touch of the tropics to your landscape with the bold, fuzzy leaves of velvet groundsel. Growing an impressive 8-10 feet tall and wide during a single growing season, it makes a statement wherever it is planted. In winter or early spring, velvet groundsel has deep burgundy flower buds that open to reveal bright yellow daisylike flowers.
Velvet groundsel grows best in full sun and moist, well-drained soil. Protect it from strong wind as its large leaves are easily tattered. This evergreen shrub is hardy to about 20 degrees F. It will resprout from the roots if the stems are killed by frost.
