Dryas drummondii


Yellow Mountain Avens

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.196.400


Yellow Mountain Avens is native to the mountains of North America, usually growing in gravel or sandy soil. It forms a low spreading mat or carpet of small, glossy evergreen leaves, the woody stems rooting along the ground where they touch. Small nodding yellow flowers appear in late spring followed by feathery seedheads that can be dried for floral arrangements. At home in a well-drained rock garden, also useful for edging pathways or growing between paving stones. Plants are not usually happy about being divided. Self-rooted stems may be moved to a new site in the spring.
