"Rocky Mountain Bee Plant" is a really beautiful wildflower that is one that was "discovered" by Lewis and Clark in 1806 on their expedition into the American west. Today, more and more gardeners are discovering it too. It's really a desert plant, so has great drought resistance, and you'll love the large bushy plant it makes--almost like a shrub, covered with its stunning big purplish/pink flowerheads. A great native plant for the meadow or the back of the perennial border.
Read our Member's Meadow story about how Martha Brodkey in Nevada discovered "RMBP" along a desert highway, then found the seeds and now grows them to perfection at her high desert home near Lake Tahoe.
