Special Notes: This showy, cheerful perennial has prolific tubular flowers in late summer to fall when other California natives have gone dormant.  Blooms coincide with the migration of hummingbirds that are one of its major pollinators. Drought tolerant but looks best with occasional deep water.  Prune back firmly in late winter to promote vigorous new growth.
