The Lime Sizzler Firebush is an exciting new addition to the Southern Living Plant Collection. This perennial shrub has a fantastic presence in the garden with its lovely yellow and green variegated foliage and clusters of vibrant red-orange blooms from late spring into fall. The blooms of this plant provide sweet nectar that will keep hummingbirds and butterflies coming back for more! The colors and blooms of the Lime Sizzler are most brilliant in a sunny location so make sure to select a spot in the full sun for this specimen. This plant has a compact tidy growth habit and is commonly used in the landscape as an accent, hedge, mass plantings, or specimens, and can also make a great element in a mixed container garden on your patio.
Plant Your Lime Sizzler Firebush 3-4 feet apart for a seamless planting. Otherwise, space them 4-5 feet apart to leave space between shrubs.

Well packed, a little damp with water for thirst, so colorfull, healthy, hope it keeps up past 30 days. Very happy with plant.

Sizzlers arrived in great shape…They may have been raised in a hothouse/greenhouse environment as it took 2 weeks to adjust to full sun….daily heavy watering has helped them acclimate and they look great in the landscape…will continue to water daily for first 45 days to establish the root system. Very satisfied with the product as sizzlers were not available within 75 miles of where we live.

I have emailed multiple times after I received my order in 2 shipments. My lime sizzlers all showed up dead , burnt and crisp as if they were left in the back of a hot delivery truck. I have emailed and yet to get a response.

Good afternoon Mr Shumaker. I hope you’re doing well. I did respond to you on May 4th. It might have gone to your spam folder. I hate to think that you thought I didn’t give you the respect of a return email. I hope your new order of Lime Sizzlers are well. – Christy

I ordered 3 2-gallon plants. I received them in a timely manner and they were packaged perfectly. The quality of plant was satisfying. I would definitely recommend plants by mail.
These 3 2-gallon plants arrived, each in their own box, in perfect condition and still moist from the watering they got prior to shipment. Healthy and vibrant. The way they were packed was great & the transit people treated them with care – not 1 dent or crinkled cardboard container.
