Zauschneria garrettii Orange Carpet®


California Fuchsia

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.590.150


This forms a low-growing mat of small green leaves, bearing a riot of small scarlet orange trumpet blooms from mid summer into the autumn. Flowers are attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies. An excellent choice for the sunny rock garden. Native to dry parts of several Western states, this plant really needs good drainage to survive wet winters. Evergreen in mild winter regions and somewhat shrubby in habit. Light pruning may be required occasionally in the spring. Very drought tolerant once established. Also said to be fairly deer resistant. A 2001 Plant Select® introduction.
