My God what is this? The common statement of hikers when they first see this plant growing on south facing slopes in rocky lousy soils. A semi-parasitic perennial that can grow by itself but likes to hang onto Adenostoma, Trichostema or Artemisia californica. Hummingbirds will work the flowers. People will gawk at the foliage/flower mix. Plant in dry sun, good to excellent drainage(it grows on cliffs, cannot get much better than that), water first year then nothing.

Castilleja foliolosa tolerates sand.
