Firecracker Flower

Justicia rizzinii

Count on this neat and tidy evergreen shrub to explode with color in late winter and early spring, when much of the landscape is taking a break from flowering and green is the dominant hue. The candy-corn-color blossoms of firecracker flower are a favorite nectar source for hummingbirds. Growing just 2-4 feet tall and wide, firecracker flower is a great choice for an entryway garden or a planting near a patio or other small space. Be sure to place it where you can glimpse the winged visitors that stop by for a sip of nectar.

Firecracker flower grows well in full sun or shade and well-drained soil. In exceptionally hot climates, plant it where it will receive afternoon shade. For best bloom, give plants about an inch of water per week.
