Description for Russelia (Red)

Firecracker plants name was inspired by the scarlet, long, tubular flowers which resemble red colored firecrackers, so common in India. Also called, coral plant, it is a multi-branched subshrub with slender, rushlike stems that are angled with ridges and leaves that are reduced to little more than small scales. The wiry branches start out erect then fall over to cascade down in lengths as long as 4 ft.

Planting and care

Prepare a potting mixture using equal parts sand, perlite and peat. Fill a pot until there is only 1 inch between the rim of the pot and the surface of the soil.
Identify a healthy branch with a growing tip that has at least two leaves near the tip of the branch. Sever the branch 6 inches below the tip and remove any leaves other than the two closest to the tip of the branch.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full sun Loam, Sand, Well-drained soil Medium 65 to 75 degrees F Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Russelia

  • Add top soil or organic peat humus to the hole when you plant. You can also add composted cow manure to the mix to enrich the soil around the root ball.
  • Cut back too tall or wayward shoots, if you like, but avoid a hard pruning of the entire plant - it may never grow out of it and recover its original beauty.
