SCARLET FIREBUSH Live Plant Shrub Hamelia patens Florida Native Orange Red Flowers Attract Hummingbirds Starter Size 4 Inch Pot Emerald TM


Hamelia patens, or Firebush is a large growing semi-tropical shrub that is native to Central and South America and several subtropical zones of the United States. Scarlet Firebush will grow in a wide range of soil conditions and does not require much care.  It needs irrigation until it becomes established, but then is quite drought tolerant, begins blooming in late Spring, displays color all through the warm season and enters a semi-dormant resting phase in the late fall. It does best in full sun, but will tolerate the shade, just taking on a more leggy open habit and produces fewer blooms. It makes a great border, background or screen plantings in mass, or is a great stand alone accent, or makes a knock out patio tree. Nectar rich prolific flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds, so great addition to Hummingbird and Butterfly Gardens.
