Cuphea Plants & Seeds

Heat, humidity, and drought are no problem for this hummingbird delight!

Cuphea (Mexican Heather or Cigar Flower) is a very quick-growing, free-flowering plant from seed that is grown as an annual everywhere north of zone 8. It sets long, tubular blooms that hummingbirds adore. Very tolerant of adversity from heat and humidity to dry soil, it thrives in the hot summer garden or container, flowering over a very long season.
