Water Saving Tip:

Even during our hottest months we don't need to water daily.

Give your plants a chance to breath.

Water late at night or in the early morning hours to avoid losses to wind and evaporation.

It has showy, creamy yellow flowers borne in small globular clusters against stems from late winter through spring. It tolerates heavy soils and innundation. It is very drought tolerant when established and hardy to at least 20'. It is somewhat Texas Root Rot prone but is tolerant and tough, good in groves and of Australian origin.
