Native to the western part of the state, this low-growing, creeping plant provides a super dose of red-orange color in the late summer. These colorful tubular flowers are often visited by hummingbirds. This plant spreads underground at a moderate rate and can cover a large area if allowed. It is a bit grumpy about being divided. Be careful when you buy plants, as some varieties and species in nurseries are less cold hardy than others.
