Cuphea hybrid ‘Starfire’
(C. ignea x C. angustifolia)

Cuphea x ignea ‘Starfire Pink’ (syn. Cuphea lanceolata ‘Starfire’) Cuphea x ignea ‘Starfire Pink’ (syn. Cuphea lanceolata ‘Starfire’)

Such whimsy! Tough, versatile, easy, fast & evergreen in mild climates like ours, this effervescent Cuphea is useful & cheery in a wide variety of situ­ations. With countless charming 1” bunny-faced blooms year round & a dense shrubby habit, it’s heat & shade tolerant, too! Hummingbird heaven!  Given part to full sun & rich soil with average water, the plant can bloom so much the foliage becomes almost entirely obscured. Wow! Great in pots! To 3’ high & wide.
