The 'Uvas Canyon' variety of California fuchsia comes from the Gilroy area but seems to be very stable here. It is cold tolerant to at least 0 degrees F., and tolerates full reflected sun here as long as it gets regular water. This California fuchsia is drought tolerant along the coast and many places inland.

Zauschneria 'Uvas Canyon' has very grey fuzzy foliage with hot red-orange flowers that flower for many weeks in early fall. A good hummingbird plant. It will handle first zone seashore(probably because of the  fuzzy foliage). Mix with California Aster, Yarrow, Seaside Daisy,  and California Goldenrod to make a very nice summer border of COLOR along a lawn. This mix is a great transition planting between a lawn and a native garden. 

Zauschneria 'Uvas Canyon' can be used as a small scale ground cover for a small summer-fall garden. You'll need to mow it down every December or so, but it can become a nearly flat 'lawn' with red flowers.

Also known as Epilobium canum, 'Uvas Canyon'
