(36-72" tall) The soaring spikes of Texas Plume reach
up to 6' high, beckoning hummingbirds and butterflies from near and far to savor
their nectar. The brilliant red blooms make a stunning backdrop for shorter
plants in a garden bed or along a fence line. In a meadow, its tall flowers
bloom in early to mid summer, heralding the start of high summer. Each flower
consists of a narrow tube that flares open to a five-petal star. Flowers are
scarlet red, some with speckles of yellow on the inside. Individual plants are
biennial, but they will self-sow to create a permanent planting. Plant this
beauty in full sun and average to dry soil. And don't worry about deer munching
on this native wildflower and ruining the show; it's not on their menu of
favorites. Other names for this plant include Flame Flower, Skyrocket, Standing
Cypress, Red Gilia, and Scarlet Gilia.
