Splendid white bottlebrush flowers open on tall stems above clumps of finely-divided, ferny foliage. It thrives best in well-drained fertile soil with some moisture retention in full-part shade. Rare and beautiful and endemic to Arizona, this splendid plant lives almost exclusively in deep canyons in the middle of the Arizona desert, where it grows up to about 5300-7000 feet, where it often grows in very moist habitats, such as seeps and springs on mountain slopes.
For best results, sow seeds as soon as you receive them in a cool place onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. These seeds can be very slow indeed to germinate, and sometimes they wait for spring before emerging whenever they are sown. Do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may simply disrupt their germination mechanism. Please be very patient, and do not discard the seed pan, no matter how long it takes for germination to occur.
