PURPLE FIRESPIKE Live Semi-Tropical Plant Shade Perennial Shrub Attracts Butterflies Starter Size 4 Inch Pot Emerald TM


Purple Firespike (Odontonema callistachyum) is fast, upright growing, semi tropical plant that matures into a large multi stemmed shrub that thickens quickly as it puts up new shoots from the root system.

The waffled, dark green leaves are narrow, oblong and arranged symmetrically. The leaves are slightly ruffled along the margins with long pointed tips.

It produces showy, softly muted, purple to mauve flowers that hummingbirds and butterflies love. Will bloom in moderate shade in a long bloom cycle that lasts well into Fall.

The flowers are showy sprays of bright mauve pink toned purple double lipped tubes that wave above the main body of the plant on tall spikes.

Firespike works well in mixed perennial beds in hummingbird and butterfly gardens, makes a great accent or anchor plant for corners or background, and is also well suited for naturalized and wildlife habitat areas for nectar value and color.
