Euryops is very commonly planted in the Southwest and in California. The original E. pectinatus has gray green leaves deeply divided. It will resist sun, drought and cold.
Euryops is exceptionally easy to propagate by semi-hardwood cuttings in water or soil. In summer, after 2 weeks, their root system is generally sufficiently developed for you to transplant them in potting soil.
