Justicia spicigera "Mexican Honeysuckle"

This evergreen, ever-bloomingshrub makes for year-round hummingbird bliss! Quickly growing to about 3’ tall by 5’ wide, it produces vivid orange flowers almost continuously, even blooming right through Winter! Drought tolerant & able to get by just fine with little-to-no maintenance, but it really does look best with a light pruning in Fall & regular water. Unimproved soil is a-okay so long as it has good drainage. For best flower-power plant in full sun & fertilize annually. Pair with other hummingbird favorites such as Agastache rupestris, Salvia ‘Royal Bumble’, or Cuphea oreophila& prepare yourself to become THE new hummingbird hotspot!
