Tell me about Firebush (hamelia patens)
I want to plant Firebush (hamelia patens) in the ground in the Spring. Right now it is in a pot.
Is this plant invasive? How tall and wide does it get when planted in the ground? Does in need to be pruned when the ends turn black? How do you control the many seeds to keep it from starting new plants)?
What are good easy-to-find trouble free companion plants to grow with it?(trouble free to me is no runner roots, not invasive, no spreading, average water, relatively disease and pest free).
I would love to have any information on caring for this plant.
