Take the last train to Clarkiaville!
With a list of lovely qualities as long as our arm, it's no secret that we dearly love our CA native Clarkias. And yet ... we find that they are entirely underplanted and underappreciated! How can that be, when they are so beautiful, tough and versatile? Just consider their virtues! Crappy soil? (Plant Clarkias!). Less than perfect drainage? (Plant Clarkias!). Hot and dry? Nibbly deer? You get the point! Plant some Clarkias and let the magic begin!
Exploding into a blaze of bloom that lasts at least a month and sometimes longer (C. rubicunda blasdalei and C. 'Shamini' can keep going on with their bad, bloomy selves till August!), they expertly fill that awkward gap between Spring and Summer when so many Spring bloomers have started to fade. Clarkias keep the bloom alive, making you look like a gardening guru when all you did was plant and forget!
And if you even THINK about growing cut flowers for the garden, then that's it, there's no question about it - you simply MUST give Clarkias a try. Lasting two weeks or more in a vase, they'll amaze you with their seemingly never-ending cheer. Plus, they always self sow so attractively here and there, rewarding you with drought tolerant babies that are free, free, free! How's that for a return on your investment?
So plant some Clarkias, please. You won't be disappointed!
