Hummingbird Bush (Anisacanthus wrightii) Hummingbird Bush (Anisacanthus wrightii)

This herbaceous shrub is uncommon in the wild but quite common in cultivation. From June to October, it is covered with light orange to dark red tubular flowers that regularly bring in the hummingbirds. Although it usually freezes back every Winter, once established, Hummingbird Bush attains 3'-4' in height and width and thrives with little water. The self-fertile plant throws its seed quite some distance and forms colonies if given the chance.

Hummingbird Bush is deer-resistant.
