Description:

Flame Honeysuckle is a deciduous to semi-evergreen shrub, notable for its showy and vibrant flowers. Native to Texas and Mexico, it's a popular choice in gardens for its ability to attract hummingbirds and butterflies, making it an excellent plant for pollinator gardens.

One of the most striking features of the Flame Honeysuckle is its long, tubular flowers, which bloom profusely from early summer to the first frost. The flowers' fiery orange to red color not only adds a burst of color to the landscape but also serves as a magnet for hummingbirds, who are drawn to the nectar-rich blooms.

In terms of foliage, the Flame Honeysuckle has narrow, lance-shaped leaves that are typically bright green, adding a lush backdrop to the vivid flowers. The plant's size and form make it suitable for a variety of uses in the garden. It can be used as a border plant, in mixed perennial beds, or even in containers. It's also an excellent choice for native plant gardens or xeriscaping, as it is adapted to hot, dry climates.

The Flame Honeysuckle is relatively low-maintenance, thriving in well-drained soils. While it is drought-tolerant once established, regular watering during the first growing season can help establish a deep and robust root system. Pruning in late winter or early spring can encourage bushier growth and more abundant flowering.

This plant's ability to thrive in hot conditions, combined with its stunning floral display and appeal to wildlife, makes it a valuable addition to gardens in warmer regions. Its easy-care nature and long blooming season make it a favorite among gardeners looking to add both beauty and ecological value to their outdoor spaces.
