Russelia Night Lights Lemon - Yellow Firecracker Plant

Russelia Night Lights Lemon is nearly a constant bloomer. I have found that the Yellow Firecracker Plant grows well even when the garden is watered lightly. The first time I saw the Firecracker Plants was on a slope in Hawaii. It seemed like the whole slope was covered in this one weeping plant. The stems of Russelia Night Lights Lemon can grow to 3 feet but generally tip over and the plants don't reach much more than 2 feet tall. Yellow Firecracker Plant grows best in a semi shaded location and performs well with a regular source of water. The plants will tolerate a sunny exposure in coastal communities. The foliage looks much like the species namesake Equisetum. Russelia Night Lights Lemon has reduced leaves and mostly looks like stalks with flowers. Plants are hardy into the low 20°s F.
