Our friend Jimmy Turner used to joke about how the word cuphea in Latin meant, “grows well in the heat of Dallas”. All kidding aside, cupheas are indeed some of the most durable plants for hot Southern summers. Starfire Pink Cuphea is just as reliable as the others in its ability to continually bloom and provide nectar for hummingbirds when the temperature is burning hot outside. We like its rosey-pink tubular blooms with lavender petals flaring out at the the opening. It is definitely an undemanding and easy source of color for beds and patio containers.
