Jamesia Americana

Jamesia americana is a genus of shrubs in the Hydrangeaceae, commonly known as Jamesia, cliffbush or waxflower.

It is native to interior western North America, in the U.S. states of California, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Wyoming, growing in the mountains at 1600–3000 m altitude.

It is fragrant and as showy clusters of waxy, white flowers that appear in late spring on the shrub, with the added interest of flaking, reddish-brown bark.

Jamesia as heavy-textured, green foliage transforms to brilliant orange and pink tones in the autumn.

This western native adds winter interest with its silvery silhouette — an excellent choice for dry conditions.
