Description

Intensely aromatic herb from the mountains of California forming low mounds of semi-evergreen leaves virtually hidden beneath exotic-looking clusters of brilliant, scarlet-orange trumpets late spring through summer. A focal point of color on a wall, rock garden or container. Provide protection from heat of summer sun for best performance; may need winter protection in some areas.
