This Civano Growers selection was chosen for its tidy growth habit, generous flower production, and exceptional heat resistance. Tucson Sun Sundrops is fancied for its large, buttercup-shaped flowers that open with a creamy-yellow color and fade to orange within 24 hours. Blooming lasts from spring through summer, making Tucson Sun one of the most colorful evergreen groundcovers available in the Southwest. It is also one of the toughest groundcovers, spreading from hardy rhizomes that withstand periods of drought and temperatures as low as 5°F.
