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

Mexican Heather Plant
I love Mexican Heather and have struggled to find it in local stores. I'm leery of buying live plants online because last time I did half of them died, they were packaged poorly and I wasted my money. These plants however, were very healthy and alive and packaged in pots with moist soil, covered with plastic that was held in place with rubber bands. My friend that was helping me mentioned that someone put a lot of care into packaging them. They came in sturdy boxes with lift out carrying trays. The other box is purple Angelonia. I am so impressed and will now buy more! Thank you!

Home Depot did not have these in store the time of the year that I wanted them. Luckily, I was able to find them online and was able to have them delivered. The Mexican Heathers came vey well packaged with no damage whatsoever. I like these plants because they are drought resistant, they always seem to have little flowers on them and they are very easy to maintain - just give them a trim 2-3 times a year. They are a great filler plant and provide lots of dense shade which keeps the weeds out. I'd highly recommend the plant and the shipping process.
