Description Germination
 
Pre treated seed.  From pleated white silk flowers wafts a citrus/apricot perfume from May to July.  The huge 15cm blooms adorn the stiff sub-shrub branches from May to July.  The orange boss of stamens are highly attractive to bees providing a bounty of pollen and nectar.  Grayish blue-green lobed cut leaves resemble those of a tree peony. When happy it is semi-woody with stems reaching over 2 meters in height and width and will slowly spread via runners.  The trick in growing this beauty is sharp drainage and full sun.  Over watering this plant will kill it and its recommended not to water after April to mimic its native California environment.
