We are not selling this product. This page is for informational purposes only.
This one's native to mountains of Ca. desert to s. Utah and Ariz.. It has the tendency to flower through the snow on us with its pink-red flowers on a 2' spike. Its leaves are gray. It appears to be very drought tolerant but will tolerate garden water if given perfect drainage. It has survived everything we've done to it so far with no problems. It is one of the first flowers to show up in the spring. Usually about the time of the fruit trees. A series of seedlings of this plant is in the trade as 'P.Utahensis'. I'm not sure what they are. They look to be hybrids between P.specious and P.utahensis. They flower and seed well but couldn't take our drought at all.
