Dicliptera suberecta
“Uruguayan Firecracker Plant”

Dicliptera suberecta "Uruguayan Firecracker Plant"

An ultimate hummingbird magnet and“must have” Summer thru Fall bloomer! From Uruguay comes this amazingly durable and long blooming HEAT, HUMIDITY and DROUGHT TOLERANT perennial that we grow in one of the most neglected spots in our nursery. To 2’ tall and 3’ across with refined, velvety, bluish-grey leaves and stems, it makes a great textural and foliar addition to your garden even before the show begins. Starting in mid-Summer, tons of long-lasting, rich coral, tubular flower clusters burst out all over, tempting hummers from near and far. Dormant in Winter but returns with added vigor!
