Jacobinia pauciflora Plant - Firefly

Justicia rizzinii

Jacobinia pauciflora Firefly also known as Justica rizzzinii is a rounded evergreen shrub originating from Brazil but rarely seen in the UK. This highly attractive, compact and dense growing, woody shrub will create an amazing display in any garden or patio. The brightly coloured tubular flowers, producing small scarlet and yellow tubular flowers that are borne profusely over a long period of time from late December to April, a time of year when colour is always desperately needed in the garden. This shrub is equally at home in a conservatory over the winter months which will also keep the colour closer to the house which is produced from late winter through to early spring, alternatively a little shelter may be required in some areas. Happy in ordinary soil ‘Firefly’ loves hot conditions and will grow in sun or partial shade. RHS Award of Garden Merit winner. Flowers January-early April/late September-December. Height 60-70cm. Supplied as a bare root in a 9cm pot.

Our first awareness of this plant was on a small Somerset nursery who had bought a plant from Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens in Dorset. As this and its Country of origin suggests it is not fully hardy and should only be planted outside in sheltered coastal areas in the Southern or South Western parts of England.
However if you are fortunate enough to live in one of these favoured warmer areas or have a frost protected glasshouse or conservatory anywhere in the UK where you can either bring in a patio pot overwinter or plant in a permanent bed this variety is a stunner!
