Dicliptera suberecta Kings Crown Hummingbird Pint Plant
Pint plant of Dicliptera suberecta King’s Crown, Hummingbird plant or Justicia suberecta. These clumps of orange tubes are in blossom from late spring to early fall in zones 8 and above. The velvety gray leaved plant is a real magnet for hummingbirds. Last summer I counted 8 hummingbirds at one time on this 2 foot high perennial. Quite a drought tolerant plant I don’t think that I have ever had to water them.
