This rare member of the aster family is endemic to the most northern California Channel Islands. The leaves are nearly white, a water-conserving adaptation fairly common in plants from the islands. Northern Island Haplopappus is an open, fountain-shaped shrub covered with yellow flowers for much of the spring and early summer. Although a highly adaptable plant, it does need ample sun and prefers well-draining soil. Consider planting with ceanothus for an attractive contrast against their dark green foliage. Island ceanothus, Ceanothus arboreus, is a natural choice from the Channel Islands. Another Channel Island companion is island manzanita, Arctostaphylos insularis.
