These are wildflowers that grow here in the NW Florida panhandle. They bloom in August, Sept. & Oct. I have seen hummingbirds enjoying their nectar. Such beautiful brilliant flashes of orange capture the eye in the woods driving from here to there.
I tried to dig some up and plant them in a barren area of my yard where not much else lived but weeds. They didn't make it. So I gathered some seeds and grew them for a year in my greenhouse. Then I transplanted them in the same barren area and they have flourished since just like they do all over the woods.
These are pictures of them. It has now been 3 or 4 years since I planted them there. This area gets no water or fertilizer except what nature provides.
