This is another of my all-time favorite, dependable California Native plants. It starts off forming this great cluster of evergreen arrow-shaped leaves and then up from the center pop these beautiful bright pink flowers. Another great wildlife plant for butterflies and hummingbirds. A big bonus is the wonderful smell of the leaves (which you can dry and use in tea). When Cassie rubs up against it and comes back in the house it is like she has taken a bath in native perfume. I have it all over the yard and it can spread to its heart’s content around here.
