A hummingbird feeds on a Firecracker plant outside McDonald’s Wharton Store 7241 on Thursday, July 23. When you take a close look at the Firecracker plant, you see a spider’s web on top and around the leaves. The Firecracker plant produces loads of one-inch showy red tubular flowers that are borne in large loose clusters throughout the warmer months of the year or nearly year round where winters are mild. It’s excellent for hummingbirds.
