No prizes for guessing what plant this is since I already revealed the name above. 

Typically, the Russelia equisetiformis (Common Name: Firecracker Plant; Family: Plantaginaceae) leaves are often reduced to just a small scale-like growth on thin stems. Occasionally, a stem with whorled serrated leaves appear instead. I wonder when it decides to send up what types of leaves.
