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.
