A deciduous, upright shrub with resinous, soft green leaves. Drooping clusters of pale pink flowers appear in late winter and spring, and are beloved by hummingbirds. This cultivar was selected by Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Garden because it has the longest flower clusters of the species at 4+ inches.
R. malvaceum have adapted to drop their leaves during the peak of heat & drought in the summer. Given heavy mulch and some summer water this summer dormancy can be limited or avoided. Be careful not to overwater, however, and provide well-draining soil.
