Native to the hills of central and southern California, including San Bruno Mountain. Showy, fragrant, magenta flowers are attractive to hummingbirds. Foliage reaches a foot tall, while the flowering spikes will top 3 feet. Forms a large patch in time. Drought tolerant, but also tolerant of water and a variety of soils. Fragrant leaves can be dried and used in tea. While not necessary, cutting the plant to the ground in January will make it look nicer the following year.
