Native to the West Indies and Mexico, Yellow Alder is a perennial, dense, compact shrub that reaches 2½ feet in height. Dark green leaves are clustered toward the tips of the branches, lanceolate to oblong-lanceolate or narrowly elliptic, 4-13 X 2-3 cm, margins doubly serrate.
Flowers are bright yellow buttercups, which look great against the dark-green foliage. The blowers might be slightly brownish towards the center. It can become tall and leggy if not pruned.
In the landscape it performs well in mass plantings, as a border or as a ground cover. It also works well in butterfly gardens to attract bees and butterflies. Yellow alder is propagated by seed, cuttings or division.
Soak seeds 3-4 hours prior to sowing. Sow seed on good seed starting mix, covering seeds with mix. Seeds should begin germinating in 14-30 days. Alternatively, direct sow seeds in early spring.
