Has green luscious leaves, with pointed and curved ends. It has a stalk on which the flowers bloom. The flowers come in many colors , or bicolored. Some are yellow, red, orange, pink, purple, magenta.
Dry grasslands , desert scrub. I found this one in my front yard.
It actually blooms all evening and in the day. It is pollinated by bees and hummingbirds in the day, and by moths at night.
