Island Snapdragon is a magnet for hummingbirds with its bright clusters of lipstick-red, snapdragon-like flowers on the tips of arching stems from spring through mid-summer. This vine-like perennial, native to several offshore islands of California, is fast growing and easy to grow, developing a dense and sprawling habit. Blooming is heaviest in spring, but occurs intermittently the rest of the year. Flowers hold up well in bouquets. Its long stems can be left free as a groundcover, trained like a vining shrub on latticework, or leaned against other shrubs to grow higher. Takes full sun, but prefers some shade in inland desert areas, and tolerates both heat and drought, requiring little or no summer irrigation. Use this dense shrub along borders, on slopes, by patios, as a groundcover, hedge, or screen and in containers.
