Flower of the Day – February 6, 2018 – Coral Plant (Russelia equisetiformis)

Also known by the names: Firecracker plant,  Fountainbush,  Coral fountain, Coralblow and Fountain plant, I love the masses of brilliant red flower tubes this 1.5 m (5 ft) bush provides in Summer – a very ‘Christmassy’ contrast to the green foliage. The flowers are around 3 cm (inch and a half) long on stems up to a metre plus (4 ft).
