Bold, ultra-bright blooms that wow for months – the Lime Sizzler™ Firebush ticks all the boxes of a prime pick. Even better? It thrives, effortlessly, whether you container plant this beauteous botanical or add it to your landscape.
But red-orange florals from late spring through summer set this plush perennial apart, along with variegated foliage that's uniquely eye-catching. Plus, since this fresh focal point is hardy down to 20 or 30 degrees, it boasts the strength to match its stunning appearance.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Find a spot with well-drained soil and full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).
Plant your flowers in a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. Water immediately to establish roots. Add a 3-inch layer of mulch to prevent weeds.
If you're planting in a container, select a pot that's about twice the size of your plant's shipped container, and use organic soil. Place your Lime Sizzler™ Firebush, water to settle its roots, and find a sunny spot on your porch or patio to place your container.
2. Watering: Water weekly, or check the surrounding soil. When the soil is dry about 3 inches down, it's time to water your rose.
If your Lime Sizzler™ Firebush is container-planted, water until you see it flowing from the drainage holes at the bottom.
