Island Snapdragon is a perennial, 2 1/2 ft. by 4 ft.. Flowers are red, snapdragon like, in spring. Native to Channel Islands. Likes to sun to part shade. It is drought tolerant (looks better with water). It is excellent ground cover near coast. It will trail out nearly flat. At 27 deg. the plant will freeze to the ground but recover; at about 20 deg. it becomes questionable that it will recover. We saw one in the South Coast Botanic Garden in the L.A. Basin that was 15-20' across. Syn. Gambelia speciosa
