Justicia spicigeria or Mexican Honeysuckle is a cheerful, bright addition to any butterfly garden. This shrub thrives in full sun with moderate watering; watering too frequently may prevent the plant from blooming. Native to Mexico, Firecracker Bush is a tropical shrub that can survive mild drought.

Mexican Honeysuckle is very tolerant of a variety of temperatures; it thrives in heat, but has been know to stay green and even bloom during freezes at 26 degrees Fahrenheit. To keep the bush compact, trim during winter while being careful to avoid any blooms. These rare winter blooms are a welcome relief to pollinators during sparse times.

Historically, Mexican Honeysuckle has been used to dye clothes and brighten laundry as soaking its leaves in water will produce a bright blue indigo dye.
