Acquired a 1-qt. pot from a California nursery in either the spring or summer of 2010 and divided it for two spots in my half-day sun garden, and now a favorite among my salvias.

Attributes: Delicate, carefree, lovely to look at . . . a hummingbird and bee haven . . . a fast grower . . . and I'll try to germinate its seed (now showing in the buds) and post results in 2012.
