CLARKIA amoena (Godetia, Dwarf) is an annual flowering plant in the family Onagraceae. It is native to western North America but has been widely cultivated as an ornamental plant in other parts of the world.
Dwarf Godetia typically grows to a height of 15-60 cm, with slender stems and lance-shaped leaves that are typically 5-10 cm long. The plant produces numerous cup-shaped flowers that are 2-5 cm in diameter and come in shades of pink, purple, and white. The flowers bloom in late spring to early summer and are attractive to bees and other pollinators.
Dwarf Godetia is a popular garden plant and is often used in borders, rock gardens, and containers. It prefers full sun and well-drained soil and is relatively easy to grow from seed. The plant is also used in wildflower seed mixes and can be an attractive addition to natural areas and meadows.
In addition to its ornamental value, Dwarf Godetia has also been used in traditional medicine for its astringent and anti-inflammatory properties. The plant is also considered to have ecological value as a source of nectar for pollinators and as a food source for butterflies and other insects.
