Bat-faced Cuphea

Bat-faced Cuphea is a great hummingbird plant. In the Memphis area, you can plant Cuphea llavea as an annual. The long tubular flower has two red bat-like ears. The plant will grow 12 to 18 inches tall and about two feet wide. It can tolerate full sun to light shade. Talk about a bloomer. This plant blooms from April to October. It works great in sunny beds or in your containers. You will find we planted them at Once Upon a Farm to lure the Hummingbirds to the feeders.
