From midsummer through frost, Flame Acanthus is covered with long, slender, reddish orange blooms that hummingbirds love, so this heat-loving small shrub should be in every hummingbird garden. Tough and hardy, it can handle the driest, hottest summers without a care. Butterflies also find it irresistible.
