Hummingbird trumpet mint

Monardella macrantha 'Marian Sampson'

Monardella macrantha Hummingbird trumpet mint
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. Read more here.

Tips from the pros: Give a little extra protection during the winter months. Plant benefits from placement near a large rock or boulder and does best in part to full, but dry, shade. Avoid bark mulch.
