Native to slopes and canyons in chaparral on Santa Catalina and Guadalupe Is.. Flowers are showy. The normal reaction to first observations of customers is whoa, what is it?, a tomato with blue flowers?' (McMinn says the fruits are poisonous, so do not plant where there are young children) A rare plant (On the CNPS list 4 R-E-D Code 1-2-2.) Use in a rock garden or with other perennials in a semi-dry garden. Spectacular mixed with Diplacus, Venegasia, and Encelia species. In our garden the plant dissappeared in the drought of the 1980's. After the -4F Dec. of 1990 we lost all plants of this species in the nursery. Then in 1995 the original plant reappeared as if nothing had happened. Natives are amazing!
