Bouvardia ternifolia

Bouvardia ternifolia.jpg

Bouvardia ternifolia, the firecracker bush, is a shrub widespread across much of Mexico, the range extending south into Honduras and north into the southwestern United States (Arizona, New Mexico and Texas).[1][2][3][4]

Bouvardia ternifolia is a shrub up to 120 cm (4 feet) tall. It has dark green, narrowly egg-shaped leaves. Flowers are speculacular: long, tubular, bright scarlet, up to 10 cm (2 inches) long, in clusters at the ends of the branches. Hummingbirds frequently imbibe the nectar from the blooms.[5][6][7][8][9][10]

Bouvardia ternifolia is widely cultivated as an ornamental because of its showy flowers.[11]
