Product Overview

Pure Beauty Farms proudly grows the Cuphea (Mexican Heather) Plant. It is a low-maintenance annual that blooms from late spring until frost without needing deadheading. While the flowers of this plant may be small, they more than make up for size in quantity.
  • Because of its small size and dense habit, cuphea makes the perfect addition to mixed containers and garden plantings without diminishing the effects of other plants, cuphea attracts hummingbirds and other pollinators
  • Although some varieties may tolerate part shade, this annual likes full sun best
  • Fertilize cuphea regularly throughout the Summer for the best, biggest, and most consistent display
  • Prefers consistent moisture throughout the growing season, it does need well-drained soil
  • Hand selected for best quality from our Pure Beauty Farms

I was hesitant to order these Mexican Heather plants because I could see them being destroyed in shipment to me. But much to my surprise, I could not have received any better looking plants than what I got. They were extremely well packed and I could not have asked for anything better. Perfect!! These were shipped from Pure Beauty Farms out of Florida and cannot say enough about their great service and excellent packing. I got the four plants in the ground and they are doing great! It really makes me want to order some more plants.
