An interesting hybrid introduced by Suncrest Nursery. A cross between the California native woolly blue curls (T. lanatum) and a Mexican species (T. purpusii), a pink flowering shrub thought to be extinct in the wild. The resulting hybrid forms a compact, rounded shrub 3-5 ft. tall with dark green, lightly aromatic leaves. Showy spikes of purple flowers with long curved stamens, bloom over a long period, late spring through fall, a delight to bees and hummingbirds. Plant in full sun with good drainage and moderate to occasional summer water. Hardy to around 25-30 degrees.
