Native Biodiversity in a Rooftop Landscape

The Scarlet Gilia (Ipomopsis aggregata) is a pretty fabulous plant. Bright red tubular flowers hanging off tall, narrow stems, and leaves so narrow they almost look coniferous. They bloom late in the summer (August), and hummingbirds and hawk moths love these beautiful flowers. Drought tolerant and doesn't require much for nutrient input, this plant is great for Wyoming gardens.
