NPIN: Baccharis halimifolia (Groundseltree)

I meant to make a picture of this plant and mention it before the hard freezes came. Bir says in his book of woody plants that he only mentions it because people always ask what it is. It is kind of weedy, but one that came up in an old fence row by the peanut field was spectacular when nothing else was blooming.

  1. Wow! That is beautiful!

    I am wondering if it grows here. We do have something they call a 'smoke tree', and it has the same effect.

    This is a native for you? I might not want one, if it looks weedy, as I have sooooo many weedy looking weeds already. But it is spectacular!

I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
