(C. hasslerana) Yet another flower that will beckon both bees and hummingbirds to your garden but watch out for the thorny stems! Also known as Spider flower, a name most likely given due to the long stamens (4-6”!) that protrude from each whorl of purple flowers resembling spider legs. Grows 4-6’ high producing one huge main flower spike with many flower-covered side branches. Very pungent and musky smell and very statuesque!
