  • Description:

    Native to Catalina, San Clemente, and the Guadalupe islands (off the coast of Southern California). This spreading open grower usually reaches 3 ft. high and 5 ft. wide, but can climb or lean on other shrubs and reach 8 ft. Leaves are about 1 in. long and half as wide. Scarlet, tubular, 1-in.-long flowers cluster toward the tips of branches. Bloom is heaviest in midspring but intermittent throughout the year. Endures light or heavy soils if drainage is adequate.

    ‘Firecracker’ is a compact form (2–3 ft. high and 3 ft. wide) with bright red flowers.
