New Desert Plant

Chuparosa – Justicia californica

We were walking out in the desert in KOFA National Wildlife Refuge the other day – winding our way through one of the many washes. A spot of bright red color caught my eye. I was thrilled to find this delicate little flower on a shrub unknown to me. When I looked up the name for this small beauty, I found it to be a shrub that thrives in the southern Arizona desert and a favorite nectar stop for hummingbirds. Cool! 🙂
