36" tall x 18-24" wide. One of our favorite beardtongues, Sunset Crater Beardtongue is easy-to-grow and re-seeds readily to make big, colorful colonies of long blooming, pink flowered plants. Although a rare species, native to a limited area near Flagstaff, AZ, P. clutei has proven to be very adaptable, needing only well drained soils, dry conditions, gravel mulch and lots of sun. Low fertility, well drained soil.
