Baja Bush Snapdragon

Galvezia juncea, Baja Bush Snapdragon, Pink Firecracker, Pink Flowers

Endemic to Baja California, Galvezia juncea (Baja Bush Snapdragon) is a dense and fine-textured evergreen shrub with arching rush-like stems lined with small blue-green leaves. Blooming profusely in spring to summer, but also intermittently the rest of the year, narrow tubular red flowers, 1-2 in. long (2-5 cm), attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Easy to grow, heat and drought tolerant, Baja Bush Snapdragon is well suited for slopes, erosion control, and makes a great groundcover.

  • Grows up to 24-36 in. tall (60-90 cm) and 6-8 ft. wide (180-240 cm).
  • Performs best in full sun or part shade in rocky, well-drained soils. Drought tolerant once established, it required little to no summer irrigation.
  • No serious pest or disease issues.
  • Prune in late fall to control size and shape.
  • Native to Baja California.
