Info

This is the only sand verbena with yellow flowers, and it is a true beach perennial, preferring the sun & sand of coastal dunes and scrub. Great as a prostrate ground cover, usually growing only 4-5 in. tall and about 2 ft. wide. Yellow Sand Verbena has a long bloom period from from March to October. It grows in loose, thick, green mats of foliage with sweet, little trumpet shaped flowers forming bright balls of sunshine color. Like most coastal natives, the foliage is fleshy. If you're ever stranded on the California coastline, the roots of Yellow sand verbena are edible. Native to California and also found outside of California, but is confined to western North America. A nectar plant for butterflies. No Historical Uses found. Found in coastal sand dunes. Communitites located in Coastal Strand Between 0 and 328 feet.
