We love ‘Goldhill’ for its easy-going nature and ability to brighten garden spaces. This drought-tolerant plant works well at the edge of the border, in raised gardens and in low-water gardens. The gray, fuzzy foliage is accentuated throughout the season with cheerful, yellow flowers. This natural hybrid combines the dense habit of its rare parent H. jonesii with the vigor of the more common H. villosa.
