Firebush

A semi-woody, native shrub known for its brightly-colored, cylindrical flowers and small, dark berries, this perennial is not only durable, but also maintains from late spring to early winter and is widely considered a South Florida favorite. Part of the Hamelia patens Rubiaceae family, Firebush can go by many names, including Hummingbird Bush and Scarlet Bush.

This plant is a gardener’s dream due its rapid growth and alluring flowers, which colors range from scarlet red to a faint orange and, once established, is relatively easy to maintain. It can reach heights up to fifteen feet but is usually kept at four to six feet tall. One of the most charming features of the Firebush is its aforementioned blooms which invite hummingbirds and butterflies, alike, making it a great addition to any South Florida landscape or garden. Although predominately used in hedges and mixed borders, the Firebush can very well hold its own as a stand-alone shrub.

Along with being attractive and enduring, this perennial also has many medicinal uses and has been used in holistic medicine for a number of years to treat a variety of ailments, ranging from skin rashes to insect bites and stings. Recently, it has been discovered that Firebush also possesses antibacterial and antifungal properties and can be used as a relief for menstrual cramps, headache, and fever.

This versatile and stable plant thrives in Zones 8-11 and although full sunlight is recommended, it can also sustain in partial shade. Despite the fact this plant is considered drought tolerant, it prospers best with frequent watering and well drained soil.
