A native to the Western United States, this hard to find wildflower has been all but forgotten. The genus ‘Collinsia’ is in honor of famed Philadelphia botanist, Zaccheus Collins by George Bentham in 1835. We use Chinese Houses as a cover over our Spring bulbs and it supplies lots of nectar for our bees and butterflies. It is also a larval host for the Checkerspot Butterfly Add some long forgotten beauty back to your garden. 12-24″ tall. Annual.
