A charming Californian perennial, 1-1 ft. high, with narrow lance-shaped leaves and drooping tubular crimson-red flowers in autumn. It may be raised from seeds, cuttings, or division in spring, and is grown by nurserymen chiefly as a rock-garden and border plant. It is perfectly hardy, but prefers a sunny position.

Zauschneria californica.
