Firecracker, Russelia equisetiformis

The firecracker plant's red tubular flowers appear almost all year long.  Slender, wiry branches cascade down rocks, planters, and pots.

Firecracker plant is easy to care for.  A jatropha pops up above these firecrackers planted around a group of live oaks.

Firecracker plant, also called coral plant, will  form a round mound about four feet high and just as wide.
