 Commonly known as Uruguayan firecracker plants, the hummingbird plant's official title is Dicliptera suberecta.

As the name suggests, the reddish-orange flowers are a favored source of nectar for hummingbirds, although it's quite typical for them to attract butterflies and bees as well.

 Hummingbird plants are often considered to be one of the easiest plants to care for. Preferring dry soils, only occasional watering is needed, and intense heat does no real short-term or long-term damage to the plant. It can also handle pretty low temperatures (although heat is preferred), and it's been known to maintain its foliage in below-freezing climates. 

 Hummingbird plants are visually stunning and add an intense flare to any lawn or garden setup.

The flowers' deep hue adds a fierce contrast to many other plant colors and materials, although it's far from the only attractive feature. The plant's blue-gray leaves are admired for being soft and velvety and adding a touch of lightness to the darker, more rich colors found in most other lawn and garden plants. 

 The shape of Hummingbird plants is often compared to that of a coral reef. The many tube-like structures from which the flowers bloom extend widely in every direction, resulting in a lot of area coverage. The plant's leaves are usually avoided by deer as a food source, making it a suitable border plant for forested areas. Typically, hummingbird plants are used to encourage biodiversity in a garden and are commonly placed within either hanging baskets or plant containers, but can be placed anywhere there's a decent amount of sun and well-drained soil.
