All in the Family.

firebush belongs to the same family - rubiaceae - as ixora, gardenia and pentas, three more of my plantings. the link also provides some interesting background on the firebush and notes that "...it will freeze and die most years north of Interstate 10." we're about three miles north of i-10.
