Cupheas are incredible plants for Oklahoma gardens. Their ability to continuously produce loads of colorful blooms no matter how hot the weather gets makes them invaluable additions to our beds and containers. Flying Fox is a seedling we discovered in our garden toward the end of the 2019 season. It is similar in appearance and habit to its parent, Firefly Cuphea, but has a few more purple and pink tones. Flying Fox also has larger and darker purple patches in the center of its “ears”. Try this new Bustani PlantFarm introduction and let us know how you like it.
