The rounded form, lovely flowers, and laid-back care requirements make Cuphea an excellent plant to add to a landscape. The Colorful Cuphea Collection is a great way to add three stunning specimens at once, including the Cuphea ‘Cherrybells’, Hummingbird’s Lunch 'CUPP1751’, and ‘Starfire Pink'. Narrow, tubular flowers grow in dense clusters and gently nod. Enjoy the flowers from summer until the first heavy frost. Ovate green foliage fills in the stems, giving the plant a full appearance. 

The striking flowers attract hummingbirds and other pollinators. Cuphea plants can be featured in mixed beds or borders or added to a walkway or fence line for a burst of color. These adaptable plants are resistant to deer and diseases, allowing them to easily live in conditions that may be challenging for other plants. Grow Cuphea as a perennial in zones 8 through 11. This plant is often found as an annual in other areas.

Colorful Cuphea Collection Care

Plant Cuphea in full sun and in rich, well-drained soil. Overly damp conditions are bad news for these plants, so good drainage is vital. New plants need consistent water, but established plants are drought tolerant. Water during a dry period to support continued growth. Fertilize every few weeks during the growing season to encourage prolific blooming. 

Cuphea plants are self-cleaning and do not require deadheading. Prune leggy growth to encourage a bushier form. Cut the growth to ground level in the fall when the plants are grown as annuals. Trim dead growth in later winter or early spring in warm climates where Cuphea grows as a perennial.

Colorful Cuphea Collection Spacing

The plants in the Colorful Cuphea Collection reach 1 to 3 feet tall and wide. Space plants 1 to 3 feet apart to create a continuous planting.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
