Plant Highlights

Growing 3-6 inches tall and 8 to 12 inches wide, this dazzling selection of Scarlet Coyote Mint forms petite loose cushions of dark green leaves and starburst clusters of firecracker red tubular flowers. ‘Marian Sampson’ is a selection from Ed Sampson of Mourning Clock Ranch in Tehachapi. Blooming continually from late spring through summer, it is guaranteed to attract hummingbirds and makes a showy surprise in a container or tucked into a shady rock garden. It is considered to be short-lived and may only last a couple of seasons, but its bright impact makes up for its shorter life. Monardella macrantha “Marian Sampson’ takes a bit more water than other natives and needs excellent drainage. Make sure to protect it from afternoon sun.
