Help needed to ID:
Red blunt ended cylindrical flower buds turn into long cylindrical tube-like flowers.
Pictures from Houston. Believe to be not uncommon.
opened flower


blunt flower buds


leaf + flower/flower bud


from a butterfly house

Some pics appear to be up to bush size, others not so large.

Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

For comparison, here's Firespike (Thyrsacanthus tubaeformis) (synonym Odontonema strictum).

Thanks...I did not even know the common name for odontonema. I had one given to me many years ago, by a close friend who was pretty knowledgeable, and it kept growing and growing and growing.....she'd given it to me as a lobelia cardinalis. I was eventually able to tell her that I knew for absolute sure that it was not a lobelia...lol..
