My husband brought me this present back from a visit to the Berkeley Botanic Garden. It's a Dicliptera suberecta — commonly known as a Hummingbird Plant. It's not a plant I had heard of before or seen at any of the nurseries around here, so I was thrilled to get it as a present, and I think I have a good spot for it. It takes full sun to partial shade (I have lots of that in my garden) and a moderate amount of water. It will definitely need to be on the drip line. My Sunset Western Garden Book says that it will get 2 ft. tall and 1 1/2 ft. wide. I like the look of the soft gray/green round leaves. The pretty orange flowers bloom summer through fall and, as the name suggests, are extremely attractive to hummingbirds. So a perfect gift me and for the garden.
