Uruguayan Firecracker

Dicliptera suberectaDicliptera suberecta

Uruguayan Firecracker was one of the most-talked-about plants in our Hummingbird Garden. Grey, felt-like leaves cover stems up to 24”; tubular, scarlet flowers add color and, as an added bonus, attract hummingbirds. Dry, sandy soils in blazing hot sun don’t faze this plant. How many fantastic perennials from Uruguay can you boast are growing in your garden?
