Odontonema callistachyum, Firespike, Purple Firespike

Firespike is a must have for southern butterfly and hummingbirds gardens.  Brilliant purple tubular flowers, upright panicles 9-12 inches long with individual flowers are about an inch long and two-lipped.  It has shiny dark green foliage with wavy margins and long pointed leaves.  In frost-free areas is an evergreen semi-woody shrub.  In zones 8 and 9 it usually dies back to the ground in winter and resprouts in spring.  Plant firespike in mixed shrub borders.  It will spread by underground sprouting, enlarging to form a thicket, but easy to control and keep contained.  Deer also love firespike too, and will eat the leaves.
