Uruguayan Firecracker Plant or King's Crown
Dicliptera [Jacobinia] suberecta
native to Uruguay
my garden in Bisbee, Arizona (USDA Zone 8b)
A low-growing perennial suitable for borders and containers. The flame orange flowers are carried on stems above sprawling sage green, velvety foliage. Deer find it irresistible, unfortunately, but can be discouraged by spritzing the plant and its surroundings with a repellent spray.
