Scarlet gilia (Ipomopsis aggregata ssp. aggregata)

Scarlet gilia (Ipomopsis aggregata ssp. aggregata) is a beautifully vibrant wildflower which is native to the higher elevations of western North America. As is the case with many red-flowered plants, this perennial herb attracts hummingbirds, whose long beaks are ideally suited to reach deep into the elongated corolla tube. This species' unique and striking appearance gives rise to the alternate common names of skyrocket and scarlet trumpet.
