Hamelia patens is a large perennial shrub or small tree in the coffee family, Rubiaceae , that is native to the American subtropics and tropics. Its range extends from Florida in the southern United States to as far south as Argentina. Firebush has orangish-red tubular flowers , which recruit hummingbirds and butterflies for pollination. Despite its somewhat scraggy appearance, this is a valuable garden tree in warmer climates and even in temperate ones, as long as the soil remains above freezing.
