Hardy Hummingbird Trumpet
Details36" tall x 24" wide (cutting propagated). Originally an Arizona native, this selection comes to us from a Boulder, CO garden, where it has thrived in spite of many cold winters. Zauschneria puts on an extravagant display of red-orange flowers. It thrives planted in front of hot south and west facing walls and walks, in areas that might fry less heat loving plants. Plant in well-drained soil, not too much clay. Hummingbird Trumpet appreciates regular watering the first year or two, particularly during dry winters, to help get it well established. In colder areas (Zones 5-6), Z. arizonica is best planted in the spring through the late summer, not in the fall, as it needs hot weather to grow strong roots.

- Primary use:
USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
