Native Bloom in Yellow
Fremontodendron San Gabriel
The Flannel Bush gets a whole heck of a lot of these very graphic thick yellow flowers. And I mean that the color is thick, not the petals, although they are too.
These are a great plant to espalier if you have the right place for it. On the other hand, they are a definite allergen to about 1/2 the population if you rub up against them.
On the 3rd hand, there’s always a little brother who can be tossed into the flannel bush to see what reaction your family might have to it.
