Growing Cuphea (Firecracker Plant)

Latin Name Pronunciation: koo'-fee-ah

Grow in full sun in average, well-drained soil that stays evenly moist. Once established, plants can tolerate dryer growing conditions.

Fertilize twice a month in summer with a water-soluble fertilizer (such as 15-30-15) to keep plants flowering all season long.
