Flaming Red Penny California fuchsia is a more compact form of Zauschneria latifolia johnstonii. It has the same lush large green leaves and large showy flowers as the Bush fuchsia but the plant is a bit smaller. And it shows a bit less Bert leg. This little California Fuchsia Penny and I saw growing in a desert wash out by Yucca Valley. The plants are very small, only a foot tall and a foot or two wide.
The flowers are reddish orange and Penny almost jumped out of the window when she saw them. This pretty little hummingbird magnet is very heat tolerant. The plants surrounding it in the wild were Salvia dorrii, Prunus fasciculatus, Purshia glandulosa, Rabbit Brush, Joshua Tree, Cholla, Jojoba, Desert Willow and Atriplex canescens.
