How to plant Cuphea


Amend heavy soil with a generous amount of organic matter to improve drainage and nourish the planting area. Dig a hole that is the same depth and twice the width of your plant, spreading the roots out before settling into place. Space companion plants 45-60cm (18-24in) apart to allow room for plant to spread as they mature. Water thoroughly and deeply after planting.



How to care for Cuphea


Water regularly throughout active growth and during periods of drought, reducing the required volume during winter. They will benefit from a phosphorus-based fertiliser during spring to promote strong and healthy root development. Deadhead spent blooms to encourage a second flush of lowers during the season.
