This amazing variant of the southeast US native Clinopodium coccineum was discovered along Weaver River in the Florida Panhandle (Santa Rosa County - the hanging chad place) by Fred Spicer of the Birmingham Botanic Garden, Rick Lewandowski (formerly of Mt. Cuba), and Florida plantsman Ron Miller. The 2' tall x 3' wide see-through clump of thin woody stems is adorned with small narrow green leaves. Starting in late summer, the clump is ablaze with tubular bright yellow flowers, each with a slight blush of orange. The flowers continue until frost and are a favorite of hummingbirds. Well-drained soils are key to growing clinopodium coccineum.
