Grindelia robusta requires full sun as it cannot grow in shade successfully. It prefers light to medium sandy or loamy soil, but can adapt to heavier soils if necessary. Dry or moist soil is acceptable, but once it is established this plant is drought tolerant and able to survive on natural rainfall.
