Common name: Firecracker Plant
Firecracker plant is a multi-branched subshrub with slender, rushlike stems that are angled with ridges and leaves that are reduced to little more than small scales. The wiry branches start out erect then fall over to cascade down to produce hanging clusters of scarlet tubular flowers that look like little firecrackers inspiring the plant's common name, firecracker plant. It is a fast growing, easy to cultivate and blooms almost continuously. This plant is a must have for a butterfly garden.
