(syn: Anisacanthus quadrifidus var. wrightii) Our late cat Zirconia thought we had baited the garden for hummingbirds after we planted a clump of Texas firecracker. This dazzling, deer-resistant native to Texas and adjacent Mexico is composed of small, pointed green leaves held along parchment-colored, upright stems. Starting in late spring and continuing until frost, the 3' tall x 2' wide Anisacanthus wrightii is covered in masses of long-tubed, bright orange, star-shaped flowers. In warmer climates where there is no winter dieback, Texas firecracker can reach heights of 6'.
