A stellar garden performer each year here at Bustani, Hummingbird Shrub behaves more as a perennial than a shrub. It is an excellent choice for perennial or mixed borders and beds. I’ve even heard that it grows well in patio containers. As soon as the weather gets hot it starts producing its brilliant orange hummingbird-attracting flowers and continues until frost. Tolerant of many soil types including clay, this winning plant is also extremely drought tolerant. This continues to be one of our most popular items.
