Cape Rush (Chondropetalum Tectorum)

This perennial makes a great addition to most landscaping projects in San Francisco. It’s a dramatic addition with great color and stamina.

Where They Do Well:

Cape Rush likes full sun or partial shade, and enjoys a good breeze to run through it, making it a good San Francisco landscaping plant.


They do require regular to ample water, but is tolerant of drought conditions after it’s new growth is complete. It’s good to trim out old growth all the way to the ground, once you see new shoots starting to appear.
