Epilobium Canum (Hummingbird Trumpet) in the Patagonia Mountains

Here’s a beautiful Hummingbird Trumpet (Epilobium canum) growing in an unnamed canyon in the Patagonia Mountains, which Gooch and Caleb now call Hummingbird Trumpet Canyon due to the huge population of these red flowers populating the wash.

This is a fantastic plant to include in pollinator gardens, not only because of its stunning display, but also because it’s one of the few native plants that is still flowering in November. One of our goals with Borderlands Restoration is to extend the nectar cycles to maintain stable pollinator populations.
