A favorite of hummingbirds, this tall perennial has rose colored, bell shaped flowers. Plant in fall to early spring. Native only to Arizona.
Seeds are good - these are everywhere in good years up here in Pinal Cty where the mts. meet above Oracle Hwy.
This plant is spectacular. The picture doesn't show the leaves - they are blue green and the flower stems have a purple tinge. Stunning plant. Ours is on drip irrigation and that helps it to fill out fully. One plant will fill about a 2x2' space in about 6 months with enough water, we've found. I have others that are not on drip irrigation, and that instead depend on rainfall and my good graces - those are smaller, but still blooming. If you are in the SW, or probably most parts of CA and southern OR, I highly recommend this plant.
