Common Name: Firecracker Plant
Availabilty: In Stock
The Firecracker Plant is a beautiful shrub that is covered in bright red, tubed bell-shaped flowers throughout the year. With a maximum growth of 900mm-1.2 metres, she is hardy to wind, but sensitive to frost. Ideal for planting in hanging gardens, cascading over embankments, colourful border planting or tub planting.
The gorgeous tubed bell-shaped flowers are highly attractive to birds and insects, use this as a colourful border with flowers year-round, or in tubs on the patio. Layer Russelia with great effect in plant beds for both contrast and colour.
Moderately wind tolerant, sensitive to frost. Most well drained soils; mulch in establishment. Full sun to partial shade.
