Lime Sizzler

Lime Sizzler

Attract hummingbirds and bees to your yard with Hamelia patens “Lime Sizzler”. Invigorate your planters’ foreground with this lively green and yellow foliage shrub. This partial to full-sun perennial blooms sizzling red-orange flowers from spring to summer and maintains an exotic, mounding overall shape (3-4’ tall x 1-2’ wide).

“Lime Sizzler” remains particularly effective in mass plantings to create a swath of bright color, or as an accent tucked between plants with darker foliage. It can be used as a border, a hedge, in a container, by a poolside, or in mass planting.  Remains hardy up to 20-30 degrees F. Wind, temperature and soil are factors to consider in watering. Feed plants in early spring and again in early fall with an all-purpose fertilizer by following label instructions.
