Hamelia patens (Firebush) semi woody shrub; red tubular summer flowers attract hummingbirds, bees and butterflies. In our north Florida garden (zone 8), if we have cold winters, it will die back to the ground, but will usually resprout and grow again for the next season.
In the ground for a week, so far, thriving
I almost bought a new firebush plant at a local plant sale. In the end, I am glad I waited to make the purchase from Mail Order Natives. My entire order arrived in great shape and all eight plants are now thriving a week later in my St. Augustine yard. This was my first order from this company after years and many orders from the larger native plant catalog companys located in the Midwest US. I have found a new place to order my native plants. I could not be happier!
Nice healthy looking plant! Great size for the price! Shipped in good condition! Good people to do business with!
I ordered 3 Firebushes and received them on time as expected.They were nice and healthy and well packed. They're growing nicely in the yard now. I highly recommend your nursery for my future orders.
