baccharis genistelloides

Post by Zorba » Fri Mar 20, 2020 12:18 am

Does anyone have experience growing baccharis genistelloides, pictured? There was a lovely plant in our local nursery that I picked up today. I hadn't heard of it before and can't find much online.

Unfortunately I can't help, I have never seen it before, but it looks good at the moment, is it evergreen?

It is not known to me either.

The Plant List gives several synonyms, but they are all unfamiliar to me as well!

It is interesting how it looks like the unrelated Carmichaelia williamsii. Convergent evolution at work?

I think we had it in the past, but called some sort of Broom (it was a long time ago!) I seem to remember you had to keep cutting bits out to get it to regenerate or it became woody and unproductive and looked tatty. It behaved a lot like Ozothamnus and Rosemary
