Neutral Floridian On Jan 11, 2005, Floridian from Lutz, FL (Zone 9b) wrote:

Small, woody perennial shrub to about 4 feet tall. The leaves are ovate, marginally toothed and covered with hairs that give them a rough feeling. Bright red, pendant flowers are solitary from the leaf axils and bloom all year.

Its natural habitat is the hardwood forests and coastal rock barrens of Dade and Monroe counties in Florida and to the West Indies and Mexico.

This plant is on the Florida Endangered Species list
