Red and yellow flowers mature in early spring and last about a month attracting hummingbirds, butterflies and bees. Prefers partial shade (but will tolerate more sun with adequate moisture) and tolerates different soil types as long as it is well-drained. Self-seeds readily in the garden and blooms the second year.
Use this plant in naturalized areas, shady garden borders, or native/pollinator gardens. Once the flowers are spent it makes an attractive ground cover. Mature size: 3′ tall and 1.5′ wide.
Seedlings come in 3 1/8″ bio-degradable pots.
A word about native plants: perennial plants, often with deep roots. Transplant them carefully as they dislike root disturbance. They are slow growing, and will not flower until the second year (or later).
