One of our showiest native biennials and also an absolute hummingbird magnet, Standing Cypress is a tall, graceful and attractive plant. An easy to grow plant that deer don?t eat, its summertime (June-August) flowers are a bright red-orange and occasionally yellow. It produces a ferny rosette of leaves its first year followed by a bolting flower spike the next year. Be sure to let a few stalks ripen their seeds and drop them naturally in place.
