Here’s What Your Tallahassee Neighbors Are Saying:
If the sight of hummingbirds and butterflies dancing in your yard brings joy and excitement, then Florida’s native grown Firebush is the shrub you’ll want in your garden or when used as a base plant for large commercial buildings. Besides the flower’s nectar butterflies and hummingbirds sip, the small, black, glossy fruits on the plant are a continuous feast for birds too.
The Hamelia patens, (its scientific name; pronounced: huh-MEE-lee-uh PAY-tenz), from the family of Rubiaceae, is a native semi-woody perennial shrub of Florida. The Firebush has two other names: Scarlet bush and Hummingbird bush. It does grow fast and will reach 12 feet tall and 8 feet across. Though it is a dense soft-stemmed shrub, it doesn’t need support to grow.
How to care for a Firebush
The prime time of the year to plant a small, one-foot tall, Hamelia patens is early spring. By the following year, this woody shrub will be about five feet tall and growing. Throughout the year the Firebush will produce gorgeous orange-red flowers which attract birds, butterflies, and hummingbirds.

With our dedication to recycling, we offer those remnants at a low price. Anyone is invited to buy a few pavers or the entire lot.

At Dickerson Farms, we believe it is mankind’s duty to care for those who cannot speak for themselves. We have made it our mission to take in animals in need and give them a quite and peaceful home.
We have a place for chickens, goats, rabbits, you name it, no animal will ever get turned away or left behind. At Dickerson Farms we love all creatures great and small.
Another feature of our farm’s operation is embracing recycling, renew, reuse, and re-purpose as much waste as we can. That focus allows us to have ongoing projects. Currently we are building a large wall using recycled concrete to help create micro climates for the goats.
Finally, like all farms, we grow fresh vegetables and many types of plants and trees in our nursery garden. When you get a chance check out our farm. We are only minutes away from Tallahassee.
