Zauschneria californica 'Glasnevin', also known as the Californian fuchsia, is an award-winning perennial bursting with vibrant red trumpet blooms. Its fiery flowers are favoured by hummingbirds in its native North America, giving rise to its other, rather delightful name of the hummingbird trumpet flower.
Thriving in sun baked, nutrient poor soil, it's perfectly adapted to our increasingly dry summers with its food storing roots and thin silvery leaves - ideal for conserving food and water.
Highly desirable for the autumn garden, and to bring colour to gravel gardens, Zauschneria will light up your pots and borders with colour and being drought tolerant when established itís low maintenance and easy to grow too!
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
Supplied as 6 plug plants ready for potting up and growing on before planting out in the garden, this compact, clump-forming perennial reaches just 30cm (12in) high x 60cm (24in) wide.
