Dwarf Coyote Brush (Baccharis pilularis ‘Pigeon Point’ and ‘Twin Peaks #2’)
Pigeon Point is an evergreen ground cover, mounding with age, and has light green, rounded leaves, while Twin Peaks is more prostrate, with small toothed leaves (see photos). Both species are happy in Full sun, part sun, or part shade. After maturity, they prefer very dry to semi-dry conditions. Thus, they need watering once a week until established (1-2 months), and then about once per month during the first summer. If watered too much, they will not do well, so do not plant them next to lawns - they actually "resent" summer water. They can mature in one to two years. The plants prefer good drainage. Coyote Brush (Baccharis pilularis) is a common upright shrub in many parts of California. Near the coast, mounding forms occur naturally that perform well in gardens as groundcovers. ‘Twin Peaks’ grows about 3 feet wide X 1 foot tall, and is slow growing. ‘Pigeon Point’ gets about 2 feet tall and 6 feet wide. Prune upright branches to keep it low. A California Native plant, Dwarf Coyote Brush is used frequently in drought tolerant, native plant, and wildlife gardens; and in natural landscaping and habitat restoration projects. Bees love it when small flowers appear in summer and fall.
