    Looks like Firebush (Hamelia). There is much confusion between Florida native Firebush (Hamelia patens var. patens)and the non-native form (Hamelia patens var. glabra). Maybe link below will help you with the correct ID. http://okeechobee.ifas.ufl.edu/News%20columns/Firebush.htm

    Color and fuzziness suggest kangaroo paw, but perhaps the fuzziness is just the picture?
