Chuparosa – For the Love of Hummingbirds

But great for butterflies and people too!

“If Arizona’s hummingbirds could vote on a state flower, it would be Chuparosa (Justicia californica).”

Given adequate water, Chuparosa will bloom year round. Also attracts butterflies and is the host plant for the Texan Crescentspot.

Chuparosa blossoms are a fun addition to salads, too, as they taste like cucumbers!
