 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 waterPink flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

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 flowers are 1 inch long. Many cultivars have been developed with flower color ranging from pale pink to red.

Hybrid Pink Flamingo has long, tubular pink flowers grow in clusters and emit a nighttime fragrance that delights the senses. It makes a great container plant that will reach 2-3' tall when grown in full sun. The blooms will last for days sharing their evening fragrance night after night.
