Product Description

Mexican Giant Cigar Plant / Candy Corn Plant Cuphea micropetala A bolder Cuphea for adding late summer interest. Tubular flowers are born on erect to arching 2'stems, and resemble candy corn in their coloring--orange, creamy yellow and white. Blooms Aug-November. Woody sub-shrub, a Mexican native with abundant and gorgeous, candy corn flowers, red tubes with yellow tips, borne on the branch tips. To 3-4' tall and wide if winter doesn't interfere. Part sun, out of the hottest midday and afternoon heat, well-drained soil, and summer water to establish. Evergreen in frost-free places; a die back perennial in colder areas, returning in the spring in upper USDA zone 7-11. Hardier with protection from winter rains. Lythraceae

    The plants were very healthy when I planted them last month. It’s just about their dormant season now so they’re looking tired but I can tell next year they’re going to be amazing. Can’t wait for the hummingbirds to find them.
