Just picked up this unusual firebush at my local nursery this week. The foliage is stunning and I couldn't pass it up. Is anyone growing this one?

Wow, that is gorgeous!!! I've never seen it for sale here locally but if I ever do I plan on purchasing one! Really beautiful!
.... Oh, and *hint* *hint* - we could use more photos in the database since there's currently only one! Green Grin! Firebush (Hamelia patens Lime Sizzler™)

Thanks Lin, I think I'm in love! Hilarious!

So how do you get photos into the database?

Go to the plant in the database, here: Firebush (Hamelia patens Lime Sizzler™)

Scroll down a little ways and on the left side you will see a section that says:

Adding Actions:
Click on: Upload a photo
Click on: Upload an image
Select the photo from your computer
You will see a green bar that says uploading ... it takes a few minutes and then you will see the photo and it will ask
What kind of image is this:
Entire plant
Bloom
etc. etc. - Just check off the box pertaining to what part of the plant it is and scroll down to the green box that says submit photo.

All photos we upload go into a queue for confirmation from a database administrator but you will get a message when your photo has been added to the database and you will receive an acorn for the picture! One acorn for a photo of the entire plant, one acorn for a photo you upload of leaves, one acorn for a photo of the bloom etc.

Try it and if you have any trouble, just holler! Green Grin!
