A low-growing evergreen woody-based perenial with prolific yellow flowers appearing in Spring/early Summer. The bloom period lasts a long time in mild climates and may extend into Fall. Calylophus drummondianus is perfect for borders and containers. Plant in full sun to light shade and provide moderate water. Sundrops will get about 1 foot tall by 2 feet wide.
