Hamelia Patens

The Firecracker Bush is a medium growing evergreen shrub. This plant can take full sun but does enjoy partial shade in the afternoons if it can get it. The Firecracker Bush stays more full and compact with regular trimming. It can be frost sensitive but will recover quickly in the spring. The Firecracker Bush has small red-orange flowers most of the year. These flowers are attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies.
