The Firebush (Hamelia patens) is a botanical marvel that brings a blaze of color to gardens, particularly thriving in warm climates. This perennial shrub features glossy, elliptical leaves that provide a lush green backdrop to its main attraction – fiery tubular blossoms ranging from red to orange, resembling flames ablaze. While not highly cold-hardy, the firebush can be protected from frost damage through strategic placement and mulching. If damaged by frost, it will re-sprout in the spring from its roots. Remarkably adaptable, this plant finds a perfect home in arid landscapes through desert planting. Its drought-tolerant nature and preference for well-drained soil make it an excellent addition to xeriscaped gardens
