The plant most commonly known as firebush is Hamelia patens, a landscape shrub with many desirable attributes. The plant you refer to must be some other species. Without proper identification, we aren't able to say what the best control method would be. You may want to check with your local cooperative extension service office for identification and possible control methods.
