Zauschneria californica
‘Everett’s Choice’

Profuse glowing-red trumpet blooms and a useful and handsome ground-hugging habit makes this one of our favorite California native late-Summer thru Fall bloomers! Dense shimmery grey-green foliage spreads quickly by the roots to form a rounded 6” tall and 4-5’ wide mat perfect for low maintenance slopes, driveway edging and along pathways. Let it spill over a wall or cascade out of a raised bed for a big blast of late season color with its brilliant 1.5” blooms and the MOB of HUMMINGBIRDS that come to gorge on the nectar. Vigorous, TOUGH as NAILS and heat and drought tolerant, just provide fertile, well-drained soil and at least an occasional drink of Summer water for lush display. Cut back to 1” in Winter. Deer resistant! Deciduous.
