Ipomopsis rubra-Standing Cypress

Propagating Standing Cypress can only be accomplished by seeding in the fall by lightly covering the seeds since it is an annual. Hummingbirds love its nectar since they bloom profusely from May-July and the flowering spikes that can reach upwards of 6' and can be pruned back after the rosettes die and it will send up another spike. It is native to the S.E. and it requires full sun, is drought tolerant and varieties come in either red, orange and yellow. It is in the phlox family.
