|[ Pennants (Chasmanthe floribunda) | Posted on January 28, 2018 ]
In my area of Solana Beach California, it is naturalized but only comes up from late winter to early spring. It comes up all over my yard, but I don't care as the birds absolutely love it, especially the warblers and hummingbirds. A black throated gray warbler and a yellow rumped warbler (myrtle subspecies), which is not regular on the west coast, have overwintered in my yard for the past two years and love the chasmanthe. The orange crowned warblers love it too!

I have grown nine different varieties of salvia up to now. I have to say this is my favorite. Beautiful, healthy, blooms almost all year. Its best attribute in my opinion is its lovely shiny lush green foliage. Drought, oversaturated soil, amendments, no amendments, this plant looks great no matter what!
