Hummingbird Trumpet

Zauschneria latifolia
Family: Onagraceae
Origin: California

Fall feeding

The Hummingbird Trumpet is a woody perennial which spreads rapidly. When it’s not in bloom, the plant looks like a tangle of woolly leaves and stems. However, at the end of summer and into autumn, this plant erupts with intense scarlet, trumpet-shaped blooms which last till frost. The nectar is an important food source for hummingbirds at a time when most things are no longer blooming.
