Epilobium (Zauschneria) ‘Sierra Salmon’

Cool late blooming California Fuchsia with silver foliage a great foil for the soft coral and prolific September/October flowers. Spreading to 2′ wide and 1′ tall in bloom it prefers very well drained rich soil with little summer water. Full sun including hot aspects for the best results. Winter deciduous. A great flower color for the genus and pairs sweetly with autumn Salvias, such as ‘Playa Rosa’ and ‘Flower Child’. Drought adapted and cold hardy.This is the most cold hardy and drought adapted Zauschneria that we grow. It spreads and thrives on no additional summer water once established. The flowers are relatively large for this species and they are a wonderful color that meshes better than the orange/vermillion varieties. Long lived perennial.
