I'm always looking for interesting container plants for hummingbirds since we do so much container gardening due to our clay soil. I thought I'd give this California wildflower called Mondarella macrantha a try. It started blooming last week. The hummers haven't found it yet, but here's a photo:

I purchased it from Sweet Nectar Nursery, but here's a link to it at High County Gardens too:

It's in morning sun and afternoon shade. I have to admit that I was not expecting it to live or ever bloom in our climate (we've had up and down success with California native plants in Wisconsin.)
