I have a plant I received in a trade that the lady called a Firecracker Plant. I've tried to find information on this plant but no luck. Does anyone know another name I might look under? The foilage is mostly purple, it has little yellow flowers on it now for several weeks and it's about 2' high. I don't remember who sent it to me so I can't ask her about it.
Thanks in advance...Nett

Tim,
That's not it. It has yellow flowers and is hardy in Ohio but thanks for trying.
