A dryland native native to the Mojave, and Sonoran deserts. Going by the names Desertbells, Desert Bluebells, Desert Scorpionweed, Desert Canterbury Bells, and Bluebells. It does well as a drought tolerant annual in wildflower gardens well out of its small native range. Glowing blue bell-shaped flowers, and frosty dark green foliage make this a stunner in the garden. A naturalizing, self-seeding annual great for mass plantings. Used in xeriscaping (low/no water gardening).
