Heimia salicifolia

Heimia salicifolia
This is an unusual small shrub related to Lythrum and found all the way from south-western USA through Central America to as far south as Argentina apparently, and remarkably easy and adaptable. A hard winter will cut it down but being so late flowering it has time to get its act together.

The deep yellow flowers are an unusual shade but are complemented by the reddish new growth, and look very well indeed as a foil for red and orange flowers in the late border.
