The Q&A Archives: Availability Of Plant Type

Question: I'm looking for a source for Firecracker plants (Russelia equisetiformis)?

Answer: I found two places that might carry the plant (they used to, anyway): Logee's Greenhouses in CT, ph# 203-774-8038; and Louisiana Nursery, Rt &, Box 43, Opelousas, LA 70570, ph# 318-948-3696. Other common names for this plant are: coral plant, coral blow, or fountain plant.

Native to Mexico, these interesting plants grow to a height of 1 to 4 feet, and have arching branches, tiny, scale-like leaves, and long, tubular flowers.
