Thryallis, Galphimia glauca

Pretty as a picture, sweet-scented thryallis flowers on and off all year with informal, cottage-garden appeal.Gracilis means graceful and that’s a perfect description of this lovely plant.It adds a soft touch to typical landscape greenery, the small leaves and upright blossoms swaying in the breeze. One of the easiest care yellow-flowering shrubs for South Florida, thryallis blooms with abandon most of the year.As fragrant shrujbs go, this one won’t overwhelm you with heavy fragrance…the smell is subtle and suitable for mass plantings.The fragrance of some plants, such as night-blooming jasmine, can be too much to take with multiple plants.Growing in light options from full sun to partial shade means this plant is versatile as well as easy care.
