    This plant arrived very healthy. When our summer got hot, the bottom stems starting dying. I needed to water more. I am waiting to see if that helps it.

      Put it in front of my home where I took out a very ugly broom. It has no protection from critters and it is growing nicely. I hope it gets as big as it is described as it will be wonderful in fall.

        Comments about High Country Gardens Zauschneria canum var. arizonica Sky Island Orange:

        I have several of these planted on a hot, western facing exposure. In clay. Once established, very little TLC is required, other than an occasional soaking when the ground gets really dry and hard. I planted several of these a few years ago and have been really impressed with thier hardiness and ability to thrive under harsh conditions. Hummingbirds like them, also.

          Used this plant on south facing slope of xeriscape garden at residences in Reno, NV and Klamath Falls, Oregon. Love that it survives the hot spots at the end of the drive and blooms for a long time. Nice carpet of red.

              Comments about High Country Gardens Zauschneria canum var. arizonica Sky Island Orange:

              Plant this plant with care. My plant sprawled over the cement driveway and turned it black. The stain does not wash off. It also stained all the pink gravel mulch dark brown-black and since the plant lost all it's leaves and died right back to the surface it is very unattractive now until it recovers the area.
              But it spreads very well and is hardy AND the hummingbirds love it. It's a great plant as long as it's placed somewhere where the staining isn't an issue - like wood chips or just mulched soil.

                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).

                Find Your Planting Zone:
