Zauschneria garretti”Orange Carpet”-California Fuchsia

Propagating California Fuchsia is simple just cut off a piece of the plant, remove any flowers, use a sharp knife or X-acto blade and put it in water and it should root in about 30 days. What’s great about this plant is it’s low growing reaching a height of 4" and although the name suggests a California type plant it is hardy to Zone 3. It prefers a semi-shaded area with good drainage but do not over water because it is also drought tolerant and evergreen in warmer zones. The flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies and is native to the dry parts of some Western states. Obviously the flower color is orange and deer resistant.
