Excellent year round bloomer for the dry garden. Deep red bloom atop dark green , slightly sticky foliage. Hummingbird favorite. Easy to grow, and almost indestructible. We grow this plant in hot dry containers that rarely get water, as well as in the ground in areas where delivery trucks are constantly smashing the plants to the ground...it just keeps coming back though, so put it in your toughest spots!
It is a rambling perennial, growing to 2 feet wide before it sprawls over and grows up to 4 feet wide. It is excellent on hot dry banks and hillsides. Heaviest bloom is fall and winter.
