Do you like spending hours pruning and fertilizing your plants? Or maybe you are tired of having to spend money on monthly visits from your landscaper.

|Mexican Honeysuckle (Justicia spicigera)|
|Baja Fairy Duster
Baja Fairy Duster (Calliandra californica) has truly unique flowers that are shaped like small feather dusters. The red flowers appear spring through fall and occasionally in winter.
Maintenance: Prune back by 1/2 in late winter, removing any frost damage. Avoid pruning into ’round’ shapes. Baja Fairy Duster has a lovely vase-shape when allowed to grow into its natural shape.
Hardy to 20 degrees.
Angelita Daisy (Tetraneuris acaulis formerly, Hymenoxys acaulis) is a little powerhouse in the garden. Bright yellow flowers appear throughout the entire year.
Maintenance: Clip off the spent flowers every 3 months.
Hardy to -20 degrees.
Plant in full sun in groups of 3 around boulders. Pair with Firecracker Penstemon for color contrast. Thrives along walkways in narrow areas that receive full, reflected sun.
So, I will be heading to the television studio early Tuesday morning with my sister, who will help me set up and take photos of the whole experience. I promise to share the video link for those of you who would like to watch it 🙂
