Coral Fountain Grass, also known as Firecracker Plant or Russelia equisetiformis, is a perennial shrub noted for its cascading growth habit and profusion of vibrant flowers. Native to Mexico, it is a popular choice in tropical and subtropical gardens for its ornamental value and ease of care.

One of the most distinctive features of Coral Fountain Grass is its abundant coral-red or orange, tubular flowers. These small but showy flowers bloom prolifically and almost year-round in warm climates, creating a striking contrast against the slender, green, rush-like foliage. The plant's arching, fountain-like growth habit makes it particularly appealing, as it creates a waterfall effect of foliage and blooms.

The foliage of Coral Fountain Grass is another attractive aspect, consisting of numerous slender, rush-like stems that give the plant a light, airy appearance. This foliage provides a lush backdrop for the bright, firecracker-like flowers, and the overall effect is both graceful and eye-catching.

Coral Fountain Grass is a versatile plant that can be used in hanging baskets, containers, as a ground cover, or in mixed borders. It is especially effective when planted en masse or used to spill over walls or containers, where its cascading habit can be fully appreciated.

This plant prefers well-drained soil and is fairly drought-tolerant once established, making it suitable for xeriscaping and water-efficient gardens. It thrives in full sun but can also tolerate partial shade, although flowering may be reduced in less light.

Overall, Coral Fountain Grass is appreciated for its vibrant flowers, unique growth habit, and minimal care requirements. Its ability to add a burst of color and texture to various garden settings, along with its adaptability to a range of climates, makes it a popular choice for gardeners looking to add a tropical flair to their landscapes.
