it does get small red flowers, the base tends to stay green, but this picture shows the plant after a freeze. The whole plant is about 2.5 feet tall. I will have to look up firecracker plant, because what I have always called a firecracker plant gets much bigger and dies back each winter.
yes, the common name of "Firecracker Plant" is used for several different plants. i couldn't remember the correct spelling and was in a hurry so i just linked you to the right plant. actually, it turned out to be the right plant; i wasn't at all certain...just a lucky hunch.
