Hamelia patens
Family: Rubiaceae
Fire Bush, Firecracker Plant
Origin: Florida
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunDry conditionsRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSeaside, salt tolerant plant

It has pale green rounded leaves and small, tubular red-orange flowers. Though it can grow to 6-9ft or more in height, it responds well to hard pruning and can be used to make a dense medium-sized hedge or an attractive shaped plant; pruning, however, inhibits the blooms, which appear at the ends of the branches. Hamelia likes full sun and very well-drained soil. Propagation is easy by means of cuttings. One of the best butterfly attractors.
