Native to the temperate Pacific coastal regions of North and South America, these clumping evergreen and annual perennials are grown for their satiny, cup-shaped flowers. All tolerate lean soil, but grow and flower best in humus-rich loam. Good drainage is essential.Calandrinia grandiflora
Native to Chile. Shrubby, clumping growth to 1–3 ft. high and 2–3 ft. wide. Thick, fleshy gray-green leaves are narrowly oval and pointed. From spring into fall, plants produce brilliant magenta blooms along tall (1 1/2–3 ft.), slender stems. Lasting just one day each, flowers appear to float above the leaves. Most effective when massed. Easily propagated by cuttings taken in spring. Regular water.
These evergreen perennials were formerly classified as Hebe, and before that as Veronica
