Cuphea micropetala

Giant Cigar Plant
  • Buy 3 for $9.33 each and save 7%
A bolder Cuphea for adding late summer interest, although we are confused by the species name...the flowers aren't really small. Tubular flowers are born on erect to arching 2-3' stems, and resemble candy corn in their coloring: orange, cream and yellow. A must have plant for attracting hummingbirds at the end of the season.
