I purchased a plant at schumachers.. a perennial that is named after the word hummingbird in spanish... something close to "cuperosa"... I am trying to look up some information on this plant and am stuck on the name... red flowers that look like a salvia... supposed to be one of those maintenance free plants that attracts hummers.. can anyone provide the proper name... I can call them tomorrow and get the answer but you know how the internet world is...
Description of Chuparosa :
(Justicia california) deciduous shrub to 4 ft., gray-green succulent plant with tubular red to yellow flowers, native to deserts of California, Ariz. and Mex., will freeze to ground but will usually grow back, good for desert borders or dry coastal gardens. It will not take total desert drought as it grows in desert washes in the warmer areas with Desert Willow. Often in sandy plains. Mix with Desert Willow, California Poppy, Encelia farinosa and Salvia clevelandii(X) or Salvia apiana.
