Description

Quick to bloom and long to last

Like the spicy chili sauce for which it is named, Sriracha™ Rose adds brilliance and stand-up-and-notice-me zest to any setting. This Bat-faced Cuphea offers large, wide-open rosy red blooms from late spring all the way into fall, lasting right through the worst heat and drought of summer. You've got to try it.

Selected for its excellent branching and compact habit, Sriracha™ reaches about 24 to 30 inches high and wide, every bit of which sports bright blooms at the height of the long, long season. And it's ready in no time—sow it indoors just before your last scheduled spring frost, then plant it out when the soil is warm. You'll be enjoying the first blooms in no time.

Sriracha's™ blooms have a papery consistency that may remind you of Bougainvillea or Oriental poppies. This gives them a delicate look, but in fact they are unstoppable, continuing to arise freely throughout summer and into autumn in most climates. This plant loves heat and doesn't mind drying out between waterings, so you can plant it fearlessly in containers without worrying about it wilting in the sweltering August temperatures.

Grow Sriracha™ as an annual, filling beds and pots with these super-quick, super easy-to-grow plants. They are both upright and spreading, filling in nicely and never needing support. You won't believe the flower power. Sriracha is the first Bat-faced Cuphea to be available from seed in separate colors, and we hope many more will follow.

loves texas

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I have grown a number of cupheas but never started one from seed. These start easily, grow quickly and spread to fill an area completely. They love the hot sticky weather of north Texas and thrive in average soil. Go for it you'll love them.

beautiful little flowers

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

this is my very first time growing cuphea. I bought this one because the colors were so vibrant. I planted 5 seeds from the pack and had 2 germinate. It bloomed today (June 20 2014) and the flowers are very small but they are sooo pretty! The color is a very bright pink. I really hope I can save some seeds off of it.
