Good To Grow, Liza's plants, Zauschneria the plant with goals

The California fuchsia is blooming already! She’s not supposed to bloom until the fall. But like last year, she couldn’t wait. Which means I’m in store for gorgeous blooms all summer long.

The plant is Zauschneria or more technically speaking, Epilobium. It’s drought tolerant and grows in full sun. Pretty much maintenance free. People say the reason the plants bloom in the fall is to help the hummingbirds have extra food before they migrate south for the winter. They are bird pollinated plants, as the tubular shape of the flowers is prohibitive to bees.

I can attest to how much the hummingbirds love this plant. Maybe even more than I love this plant. Which is saying a lot!!!!

About Me

Hi! My name is Liza. Welcome to my blog and thanks for visiting! I'm a Midwestern gal now living in Arizona, after many years of living in and owning a plant care business in New Mexico.

Plants are living, breathing creatures, and if they're indoor plants, they are 100% dependent on human care. They cannot water themselves.

I can beautify your home, office, or patio with plants and flowers. I have 13 years of experience growing plants, and friendships.

Please let me know if you have questions or if you would like help with your plants or garden. You can reach me at lizatheplantlady (at) gmail (dot) com or follow me on Twitter, Lizawheeler7.

All photos are mine unless otherwise noted. All content is also entirely my hard work. If you'd like to use any content or photos, all you have to do is ask. If you take without asking, you are a thief. And thieves suck. So don't suck. We have a deal? Good.
