Firebush has to be one of the easiest and most attractive native plants for a Florida-friendly garden. It is a woody perennial shrub that is drought resistant and withstands our Florida heat and humidity. The bright red-orange tubular flowers appear on and off all year, more in warmer weather, and in cooler months some of the slightly fuzzy leaves will turn bright red. Birds, butterflies and hummingbirds love firebush, a wonderful wildlife plant and one of the prettiest native plants Florida has to offer.
