Gray California Fuchsia (formerly
Zauschneria cana) is a
gorgeous, reliable, easy care, drought tolerant late
summer/early fall blooming plant with profuse bright orange-red flowers. Its
soft gray foliage and 1-2 inch long flowers are light and airy and move
gracefully with the breeze.
In the background of the picture on the left, you can see
the silvery leaves of White Sage and the
small, starry, blue flowers of Society Garlic.
Gray California Fuchsia is a very
important fall blooming plant, not only for the much needed boost of color,
but also for the nectar rich flower tubes that feed the hummingbirds.
