Galvezia speciosa, 15 seeds
Yet another perennial plant that the hummers in my yard cannot do without. Native to Channel Island and Guadalupe Island off Southern California, Galvezia speciosa is a wonderful evergreen bush that can be used as a groundcover in both full sun and part shade, forming a dense mound with arching stems and glossy foliage. Blooming in late spring through fall, it produces tubular, bright-red flowers that are flared at the lip, resembling those of snapdragon. Very attractive to hummingbirds. Drought-tolerant when grown in shade. Hardy from zone 9 onwards. Full sun to part shade. 3 feet tall, 4 feet wide. Well-drained soil but tolerant of clay. Usually available only in plants form. Hard-to-find fresh seeds, harvested 06/2017.
