Welcome to Fremontia Horticultural Inc
Specializing in California native and drought tolerant plant material for the wholesale trade
Fremontodendron californicum, the inspiration to our name, is a beautiful and stunning large shrub or small-medium sized tree that can reach heights of 15-20 feet. Yellow 3-4 inch flowers explode in great numbers to put on a show in the spring and into summer. “Fuzzy”, or Stellate hairs come armed on leaves and trunk which cause skin and eye irritation. Take precaution when getting near one. Extremely drought tolerant. So much so that summer water can be a problem and kill off the plant. If you’re looking to plant, plant in a very well drained soil with supplemental water. It might be a good idea to give no water to the plant after three years.
