Bouvardia ternifolia, Scarlet Bourvardia, Trumpetilla, Firecracker Bush, Hummingbird Flower

Click to see full-size image Bouvardia ternifolia
Family: Rubiaceae
Scarlet Bourvardia, Trumpetilla, Firecracker Bush, Hummingbird Flower
Origin: Arizona, New Mexico and Mexico, down to Central America
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterRed/crimson/vinous flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Native to rocky sites like mountains and canyons. It makes a showy accent plant with a never-ending display of brilliant orange-red flowers. To be grown either in a pot or the landscape, and since it attracts any hummingbird in its immediate vicinity, it is a good plant to place close to patios, arbors, windows, or any viewing area. It does best in full sun and neutral to acid soils, becoming chlorotic in the highly alkaline soils. Light pruning to remove spent flowers will help it maintain a compact shape. The unscented red flowers are 1 inch long. Many cultivars have been developed with flower color ranging from pale pink to red.
