You say Zauchneria, I say Epilobium—one thing we agree upon in that California Fuchsias are fantastic hummingbird magnets. And ‘Everett’s Choice,’ with its profuse bloom of orange-red flowers will have hummers visiting in late summer and into fall. Growing less than 1’ tall by 5’ wide, this perennial has furry, grey-green leaves that spread along the garden floor. Deer resistant, coastal tolerant, and drought tolerant, ‘Everett’s Choice’ does best in full sun with good drainage and some summer water. Hardy to 0°F. The name Epilobium comes of the Greek words “epi,” which means “upon” and “lobos” meaning “lobe,” which refer to the flower’s position above its seed pod. Use Epilobium canum ‘Everett’s Choice’ in rock gardens, desert landscapes, and trailing over walls.
