This native of Mexico has naturalized in Florida and other tropical locations. Surprisingly, it has also performed extremely well in the hot deserts of the Southwest. In the low deserts its long, arching branches form a dense mound to about 3 feet tall by 4 to 5 feet wide. The weeping branches are bright green, with very few leaves. In the warm months, these branches are loaded with tubular coral-red flowers. Coral Fountain is very adaptable, handling full sun and shady exposures. Although it is quite drought tolerant, It is also notably salt tolerant and responds to regular fertilizer applications. Use Coral Fountain on steep banks, cascading over walls and planters, and clustered around water features.
