Belonging to the Onagraceae family, this cultivar hails from the arid regions of California, showcasing its adaptability to dry and rocky landscapes. The 'Glasnevin' variety of Zauschneria californica is renowned for its tubular, coral-red flowers that appear in late summer and continue through the fall, providing a burst of color when many other plants are waning. The slender, trumpet-shaped blossoms attract hummingbirds, adding a lively and dynamic element to the garden. In terms of size, California Fuchsia 'Glasnevin' typically forms spreading mounds with a height ranging from 12 to 18 inches (30 to 45 cm).

It has the resilience and adaptability required to thrive in California's arid landscapes. Its ability to withstand dry conditions and poor soils makes it a valuable addition to water-wise gardens. The late-season blooming period provides a unique and welcome pop of color, contributing to the overall aesthetic appeal of the garden. Not only is it a visual delight but also an ecological asset, supporting pollinators, particularly hummingbirds, with its nectar-rich flowers. The plant's ecological role and vibrant display make it a favorite among gardeners seeking sustainable and colorful additions to their landscapes. Whether cascading over retaining walls, complementing other drought-tolerant plants, or attracting pollinators, California Fuchsia 'Glasnevin' adds a touch of the American West's natural beauty to gardens worldwide. With its resilience, vibrant blossoms, and ecological contributions, this cultivar stands out as a captivating and environmentally friendly choice for arid and sunny garden spaces.

Sowing Advice

Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
