Epilobium (syn. Zauschneria) canum 'El Tigre'

California fuchsia


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
A selection of this California Fuchsia from El Tigre Peak on Santa Cruz Island. This is low growing form to just 8" tall but can spread to 4' across or more when happy. And making this happy is really pretty easy - pretty much just ignore it in a dry, hot sunny spot with good drainage and your reward will be lots of tubular orange-red flowers in late summer-fall with further decoration provided by appreciative hummingbirds.
