Description

3-4" tall x 6-8" wide. A dazzling selection of this California native wildflower species, Monardella macrantha 'Marian Sampson' (Hummingbird Coyote Mint) has clusters of brilliant red, tubular flowers held over low mats of dark green, shiny leaves. Blooming in late spring it is certain to attract the hummingbirds. This little gem is great for a rock garden or in a container. Easy-to-grow, it needs sharp drainage and infrequent summer water. While short-lived, it makes up for it by being exceptionally showy and exotic. Introduced into the trade by Ed Sampson of the Mourning Cloak Ranch in Tehachapi, CA and named it in honor of his late wife, Marian. Horticulturist Panayoti Kelaidis, director of outreach at the Denver Botanic Gardens, praised this plant in a blog article Mandala mint revisited...some more glimpses of a spectacular native plant.
