Fremontodendron 'Ken Taylor' (Flannel Bush) - This great plant is a hybrid created by Ken Taylor at his native plant nursery and garden in Aromas, CA. It blooms golden flowers with a darker orange outside petals in the spring and summer and grows to only 5 feet tall and spreads to at least 8 feet. A great plant for slopes or other well-drained sites. Full sun, no irrigation water needed once established. It is thought to be an F2 hybrid of F. californica ssp. decumbens and F. 'Californica Glory'.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Fremontodendron 'Ken Taylor'.
