Details

36" 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.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Zauschneria arizonica:

    I live in New Mexico north of Santa Fe at 6,000 feet, yet this plant seems to tolerate winters well. I do have it in a protected spot. I found it hard to get it established, but now it is green and blooms profusely. It is spreading very slowly.

    My major complaint is that I have never seen a hummingbird anywhere near even though we have several pair nesting on our property. Maybe New Mexico hummingbirds are different, but they just have no interest at all. I can wear a red shirt and get more attention than this plant.

      Q & A

      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).
