California fuchsia


My favorite late summer and autumn flowering plant has to be California fuchsia, aka Epilobium canum, or formerly Zauschneria. The red trumpet flowers are extremely popular with hummingbirds and bloom from about mid-July to November. They require no water and bloom continuously. The plants die back over winter, and reemerge the following spring.
