Transporting you to California. For anyone who needs a little sunshine…


Known as California Glory, Fremontodendron Californicum, is looking stunning at the moment. It’s an evergreen shrub best grown against a warm south-facing wall. It flowers from May to September. Prune back side shoots to between two and four buds after flowering to control growth.  I’ll probably never travel to California, but I can enjoy a little of its sunshine here. Plant one and just bask in its sunny glow.

  1. Ah, pruning side shoots to control growth – that’s where I went wrong, and mine went to the hevanely compost heap years ago. Mind you, it was surprisingly ‘prickly’ too, my skin definitely didn;t like it very much
