Clarkia concinna California Red Ribbons Seeds California Native Species

Pkt 200+ Seeds

Product Description

Clarkia California Red Ribbons is an easy to grow hummingbird magnet! This low water, low maintenance plant is lovely even when it's not in bloom with red tinged stems, glossy green foliage and a somewhat airy habit. The finely cut 4 petaled flowers look like pink butterflies fluttering in the breeze and are a staple in native and habitat gardens for pollinators. A slightly sprawling bushy habit about 1ft high is the perfect under story plant for larger shrubs. Happiest with bright filtered or dappled shade in sandy or well drained lean soil. Like many California natives it most likely does not need fertilizer and too rich of soil can result in over abundant foliage growth causing floppiness and less flowering. Flowering slows in hot summer areas. This seed is specifically collected and grown in Northern California.
