Dicliptera suberecta-Hummingbird Plant

For the hummingbird fanatics this plant must be in your garden however be aware of the zones. Normally it is a perennial in Zones 8-10 but some say its good to Zone 7 but if you get a cold winter you could lose it but you can divide it and take one plant inside during the winter. Divide the root ball in spring or early fall and it blooms from late spring to fall. Honeybees and butterflies also enjoy the nectar and deer do not like the plant. It grows to a height of 1-2' and its blooms can either be orange or red and will take full sun or light shade and light drought. It is a native of Uruguay.
