Common Deerweed. A very drought tolerant perennial that shows off its bright yellow flowers from spring through summer.  Its useful in restoration and in newly established gardens as it helps add nitrogen to the soil naturally. Tolerates clay soil and grows 3’ high and wide. Attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.

Echium wildpretti

Echium wildpretii

This Tower of Jewels lives up to its name.  Upon maturity in the second spring, it sends up a 7’ spike that takes on a conical form, covered in clusters of deep pink flowers.  In the meantime, the 30” foliar rosette adds beautiful form to the garden.  Very drought tolerant! Plant in full sun and well-drained soil.  The flowers attract hummingbirds and when left to mature, will self-sow in the garden for future enjoyment!

A rare plant to find in cultivation, the Resin Bush comes from rocky dry habitats in the valleys and mountain slopes of South Africa.  It grows about 4’ tall and displays rich yellow to orange flowers in late summer.  Old flowering stems and bracts are woody and make a beautiful addition to dried flower arrangements.
