They are attractive to hummingbirds and are a larval food source of the West Coast Lady butterfly. Plant in full sun. It will tolerate drought, wind, and salt spray. It is very fast-growing; it may reach 5' and bloom in its first year. Native to Channel Islands but naturalized along coastal California.
