Award-winning Epilobium canum ‘Dublin’ (California Fuchsia) is a compact, spreading, deciduous sub-shrub adorned with narrowly lance-shaped, gray-green leaves that are velvety to the touch. In late summer to fall, spikes of brilliant scarlet flowers, 4 in. long (10 cm), put on a profuse show. Resembling fuchsias, they are visited by hummingbirds. A native of hot dry places on the west coast of North America, it is the perfect plant for rock and gravel gardens, raised beds or dry-stone walls, where it will offer an abundance of the most brilliant scarlet flowers for weeks. Its low-growing habit makes it suitable for the front of the sunny border too.

  • Recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society.
  • Grows up to 12-18 in. tall and wide (30-45 cm).
  • Thrives in full sun in well-drained soils. Sandy or gritty soils are much better than heavy clay soils. Protect from cold winds. Drought-tolerant once well-established.
  • Virtually pest and disease free. Keep an eye out for slugs that may damage the young leaves.
  • Propagate by seed, softwood cuttings or division.
  • Pruning not normally needed, cut back to rootstock in spring to renovate.
