Abundant yellow orange flowers all season long; loves the heat and loved by hummingbirds
Proven Winners® Annuals - Vermillionaire ™ Cuphea
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
Vermillionaire®, like all Cuphea is a heat lover and will do best in warm gardens with bright light. Always keep this plant in full sun for best flowering and to avoid it stretching in the shade.
Keep moist throughout the growing season, regular fertilizing will keep it full and constantly flowering. Once established Vermillionaire™ does not require a lot of water, but water regularly until it has grown a bit.
Great hummingbird attractor! They love this plant, one of their preferred plants in most gardens.
