Daily Bloom

On my morning walk to work I pass this house with the gorgeous coral plant draping over the wall. It is called Russelia equisetiformis, commonly known as Firecracker Plant or Coral Plant. Russelia equisetifomis produces thin wiry like foliage and scarlet to coral tubular flowers from Spring until Fall. This plant is excellent for containers, hanging baskets, or spilling over walls. Much like a fountain this plant is perfect for creating movement in the garden!
