Russelia, Red

Russelia sp.

Native to Mexico, this fast growing small shrub has long slender branches that grow up to four feet tall, then easily cascade over making it ideal for raised flowerbeds. The wirey leaves on the branches are mixed in with clusters of flowers that first appear in the spring and persist till fall. The blooms are one inch in length, red-scarlet and narrow till the end where they open up - resembling small fire crackers.

Firecracker plant appreciates regular watering and fertilizer, however can continue to bloom through the dry summer. Easily attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.
