Vestia foetida

Rare evergreen shrub, 4-6’ high x 4-5’ wide, dripping with clusters of narrow, tubular light yellow flowers, petals flared with protruding stamens, spring summer. Sun loving, drought tolerant (but probably happier with regular moisture) and deer resistant…decent soil, also good in a big pot. Happy at the coast or inland with a little protection. This is in the nightshade family so probably toxic. ‘Foetida’ pertains to the somewhat ‘foetid’ smell of the crushed foliage.

USDA Zone: 8b
Mail order size: 3 inch pot
