Siskiyou inside-out flower is uncommon in the wild and rarely seen in cultivation. It is the most
colorful and most challenging of the Vancouverias. Small bright yellow 6-petaled flowers stand above
the clumps of angular leaflets on thin wiry stems. Vancouveria makes a slow growing ground cover
for a shade garden or a nice specimen for a container. Needs good drainage.
Habitat
Dry sites, chaparral, coniferous forests
