The red, feather-like plumes of fairy duster will have hummingbirds visiting your garden from early spring through fall while furnishing your garden with color nearly year-round. Exceptional heat and drought tolerance, ferny semi-evergreen foliage and the open, rounded form of this shrub make it a versatile choice. It's a perfect fit in natural landscapes, or as a specimen in the more manicured garden. Maricopa Red is a hybrid between the hardy, native Pink Fairy Duster and the less hardy Red Fairy Duster, resulting in a more compact and cold tolerant fairy duster with vibrant red flowers.

*Height and width estimated for growth in the Tucson, AZ area. True sizes may vary.
