Bigelowia nuttallii


Bigelowia nuttallii is a North American Native, found in the Piedmont, in the Western and Eastern Coastal Gulf Plains. This plant can live in low-nutrient, low-profile soils and adapts very well to green roof conditions. Foliage consists of small tufts of narrow green leaves, with showy yellow flower umbels held above the plant, on thin stems. Blooms are long lasting. This species is one of only two, in the US. Its long bloom time provides a food source for local pollinators throughout the mid to late summer.

Large quantities require a custom order. Please contact the office for lead times.
