Comments: This semi cold hardy tropical woody shrub produces creamy-yellow flowers above lacey foliage. It will normally freeze back to the ground in much of the South but will return from the roots the following spring. It blooms from late spring until frost. Plants can grow quite tall in a single season and can become rangy in their growth habit.
