Mountain States Nursery
Cliffrose generally grows to about 6' tall and wide, although some specimens can reach up to 15' tall. Waves of creamy yellow fragrant flowers in spring and summer add considerable intrest to this plant. Very useful in higher elevation areas, but can be grown in the low desert as well. Fall, fruit is long feathery plumes. Long lived and drought tolerant, demands well drained sites. Native on dry slopes across SW USA 3-8000'
