Whipplea modesta

Known as Yerba De Selva or Modesty for its innocuous character. Keator's description says it always looks like its about to burst into spectacular growth. It is easy & looks good all year round. Very similar to Yerba Buena in appearance and culture. Needs some shade.

There is a bit of Yerba Buena in this picture, just above the fern, between the rocks for comparison.
