Native Flag: 2 ft. x 3 ft.

1 Gallon Firebush Tree: About 10 in. tall

Hamelia patens is a large perennial shrub or small tree in the coffee family, Rubiaceae, that is native to the American subtropics and tropics. Its range extends from Florida in the southern United States to as far south as Argentina.

Help regrow our native tree canopy, protect biodiversity, and sequester carbon dioxide by planting a firebush tree in your front yard.

Participants are asked to plant a native tree alongside the green project flag in their front yard and state “I hereby reclaim this land for nature.” The project’s project’s conspicuous green flags serve as a catalyst for conversations with neighbors, who will be encouraged to join the effort and help rebuild their native tree canopy one yard at a time. Ideally, as they watch each tree grow, their interest in the environment will also grow.
