Blooms for months in brightly colored clusters of pollinator-friendly flowers

Firecracker bushes comes in eye-catching shades of red, reddish-orange, pink, yellow, or white. They are rich with nectar and highly attractive to bees, butterflies, and especially hummingbirds. 

Firecracker bushes grow and bloom best in full sun. Some grow as tall as 4 feet, but most stay smaller, so they’re suitable for containers and, with adequate sunlight, can be grown indoors as houseplants. They are adaptable to a wide range of soils, as long as they are well-draining and have a slightly acidic to neutral pH. Once established, the shrubs are fairly drought tolerant and are a good choice for a xeriscape or rock garden. But they are also perfect for a pollinator, perennial, or cutting garden.
