Note This plant goes semi dormant beginning in late August. The leaves develop some spots, turn a darker color and will drop easily. It's the normal Fall/Winter state of the plant and not a 'defect'.
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.
