200+ Seeds of Standing Cypress, Ipomopsis rubra.
Brilliant scarlet tubular flowers along the entire length of a single, 3? - 5' erect spike are a hummingbird magnet! Very finely divided foliage makes a low rosette the first year, bloom spikes come in year 2 and are well worth the wait! These may bloom the first year if started early. These are especially striking when planted in a large group (and they help to support each other that way, too, since they grow so tall).
Hardy in zones 6-11 this superstar blooms from June through first frost and is a favorite of hummingbirds and butterflies. I first encountered these plants growing along I-10 in northern Florida, so you know they have to be tough! Standing Cypress loves heat and sandy, well-drained soil and is very drought tolerant once established.
