Another interesting hummingbird plant... This is called the Geiger Tree (Cordia sebestena). It is found growing successfully into tree form further south of me in Miami and the Florida Keys. It can't handle freezing temps, so every winter it dies to the ground. It comes back every year and grows to a medium size shrub which seems to blooms constantly from early summer to frost. The fruit is very interesting looking, but is tasteless to me. It produces fruit from every bloom and they drop all over the ground below. I've never gotten a single volunteer from seed in my yard. It's a hummer magnet which may be why every flower produces fruit. I've never seen bees or butterflies use it, which is odd.
