This selection boasts the bright red flower of its parent Galvezia speciosa but with a bushier, more compact habit. This is a versatile plant for borders, containers, banks or under larger native shrubs. It is a great plant to have under oak trees and is a favorite with hummingbirds. For the lushest growth you should soak deeply occasionally.
