Attract hummingbirds to the abundant, stand out, red flowers of this monkeyflower. Hailing from southern California and growing 2 -3 ft. tall and at least as wide, this drought tolerant, floriferous shrublet blooms late spring into fall. Plant in sun to light shade with good drainage and occasional summer water. Besides hummingbirds, other pollinators will be attracted to the flowers and the foliage is used by checkerspot and painted lady butterfly larvae. Deer resistant.
