This northern California resident blooms early through mid-autumn. Vermillion-orange trumpets and silver-green leaves dazzle everyone, especially hummingbirds. Whew! It takes my breath away! This is a prime example, in the parlance of the art academy, of what is called "the interaction of color!" (Homage here to Joseph Albers) Its joyful in the worst of conditions from clay to heat and drought. We should take a lesson. (Named in honor of the Mattole Native Americans of Humboldt Co., Northern California.)
