Cuphea 'Minnie Mouse' flourishing

February 23, 2019

 

This wonderful Cuphea plant produces cute little red blossoms with brownish "Mouse Ears".

 

 

We have two of these shrubs growing in one of the patio plant beds.

And they seem to be growing in just the right kind of light and soil, in bright shade with good soil.

I fertilize the soil around the shrubs throughout the spring, summer and fall,  with eggshells, banana peels and used teabags.

 

 

These plants are native to Mexico and South America and produce blossoms throughout the year. Hummingbirds constantly feed on the nectar in the blossoms.
