A selection from the mountains of Orange County CA notable for its rose colored flowers. This species has somewhat viscid green leaves that tend to drop in late summer but reappear with the rains of autumn and have handled temps to 15F here. Late winter-early spring flowers in our area, these delight our overwintering Anna's hummingbirds and in warmer areas, this will flower all winter. Good drought tolerant plant just needing an occasional deep watering.
