IPOMOPSIS

These American natives have a definite wildflower look, with erect single stems, finely divided leaves, and tubular red (or yellow-and-red) flowers. Individual plants are narrow and somewhat startling in appearance; they are best massed. They survive on rainfall but can take irrigation if grown in a watered border. Sow seeds in spring or early summer for bloom the following summer.

Ipomopsis aggregata
