at Digging Dog

California Mock Orange

Carpenteria

Carpenteria californica ‘Elizabeth’ full sun

First discovered by Colonel John Charles Fremont, this elegant evergreen was considered by the British to be “one of the most splendid acquisitions from the Californian flora.”

Fragrant yellow-eyed, double white flowers that resemble Japanese Anemones embellish gorgeous flaking bark and thick, dark green linear leaves sporting a lustrous sheen on top and a whitish down on their undersides.

Peerless as an understory for taller trees or as a backdrop for perennials, ‘Elizabeth’ can be found growing along hillsides in California’s Fresno County and is happiest in cool, moist and well-drained abodes with protection from the hot afternoon sun, though once established it can handle some drought.

Blooms May – June.

Size: 3'–6' high x 3'–6' wide; hardy to zone 9.
