Plant one of these low-maintenance beauties and forget about messy hummingbird feeders and sugar water! The red, feather-like plumes of fairy duster will have hummers visiting your garden from early spring through fall while furnishing your garden with color nearly year-round.
Exceptional heat and drought tolerance, ferny semi-evergreen foliage and the open, rounded form of this shrub make it a versatile choice; a perfect fit in natural landscapes, or as a specimen in the more manicured garden. ‘Maricopa Red’ is a hybrid between native and hardy pink fairy duster and the less hardy red fairy duster, resulting in a more compact and cold tolerant fairy duster with vibrant red flowers. For best results, provide good drainage, at least 6 hours of full sun, and irrigate once a month.
