What Houzz contributors are saying:

Firecracker Plant(Russelia equisetiformis)Firecracker plant is a bit more unkempt than the other ground covers listed here, but its airy and transparent demeanor keeps it from becoming too visually obtrusive. It is ideal for slopes or retaining walls, where its billowing and delicate stems can arch downward in a waterfall of tubular red flowers that hummingbirds can't resist. It is drought tolerant enough to be commonly planted in the warmer areas of the American Southwest, and apart from pruning errant stems, there is little maintenance to worry about, especially if you plant it at least several feet away from paths. The long and wispy stems look superb when planted amongst architectural plants like agave and crinum, and firecracker plant can even be trained against walls and trellises in small spaces.
