This plant took 3 years to really start growing, but now it's huge. I started from the small cutting. I've planted 2 others along the worst spots in my xeriscape along the north side to fill space. In the fall, the yellow blooms are surprisingly beautiful.

This purchase was one of several that I made in past few years with this company. In the past I received mostly cuttings that I would need to give careful attention to make them survive but most ended up dying anyways. This purchase was no different. I received three cuttings that were "dormant in late spring." All three died. I have decided for not to order any products from this company any more. Way too expensive just for cuttings that are going to die.

Didn't grow much this year but seems healthy.
Did not survive
from Pueblo CO
While I have been happy with most plants that I have purchased thru High Country Gardens, this wasn't a very good size plant on arrival and did not take. Sometimes plants do not look like they are going to make it but surprise you.not so this time
Very hardy and quick to establish
from Fort Collins, CO
Due to some delays with a landscaper this plant was pot-bound until late July which meant that I had to keep it in the shade much more than it probably preferred to avoid drying out. I'm amazed it survived, and when I finally did get it in the ground it did not look like it would make it. After a few weeks, though, it perked up and got enough growth that it should be fine. It did surprise me with an aphid infestation late in the season, but they were easy to deal on a still-small plant and I can't imagine them doing much damage in the future as this plant thrives in the wild here.

This is a word of warning...although an attractive plant it is invasive as bamboo. Nothing eats the plant itself. New Mexico has been fighting the Rabbitbrush invasion for years.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Chrysothamnus nauseosus Yellow Twig
from Cedar Grove, NC
This plant looked poorly when I got it-not just dormant, but dying. I planted it anyway, thinking it might have root strength to survive, but it didn't

I bought the Yellow Twigs to fill in some space on my property. I ordered 2 of them in the fall. When they arrived I had to chuckle as they were so tiny. But I thought what the heck, they will grow and followed instructions and planted them. This spring one looked totally dead, the other had about an inch of green. I have kept them watered and they are slowly coming back to life. I hope they continue to grow, and hopefully will get to the size as promised.
Merchant response: Good Day Pamela,We are so sorry to hear of your disappointment! Many of our perennials take about 2-3 years depending on the growing conditions to reach the mature growth as described in the product description. Many of our customers have described the growth rate of our perennials as the first year, the sleep; the second year, they creep and the third year, they leap! However, we do offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all of our products which we are more than happy to go over with you. We have reached out to you via email to discuss your options so you can get exactly what you paid for!

I planted it a little late, but although it's small, it had yellow blooms this fall. It's been covered in snow for over a month, so I hope all is well in the spring.

Happy with my purchase
from Park City
In my first product shipment, the plant detached from the root ball on 2 of 3 plants. HCG promptly replaced the 2 defective plants so that all 3 grew and developed at the same rate over the growing season. This is a very hardy native species so I'm hoping the plants survive the winter well and thrive over the upcoming growing season.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
