The flower bud is ampule-shaped and contains water. These buds are often used by children who play with its ability to squirt the water. The sap sometimes stains yellow on fingers and clothes. The open flowers are cup-shaped and hold rain and dew, making them attractive to many species of birds.

In Neotropical gardens and parks, their nectar is popular with many hummingbirds, such as the Black-throated Mango, the Black Jacobin, or the Gilded Hummingbird.
