Cuphea 'Hummingbird's Lunch'


Cuphea 'Hummingbird's Lunch' has masses of tubular flowers in red and yellow that will feed hummingbirds all season long.

Cuphea 'Hummingbird's Lunch' is a fascinating, low-mounding, easy-care, tender, evergreen perennial with a tidy round habit 24 inches tall by 36 inches wide at maturity. Bright, two-toned tubular flowers of cherry-red and yellow bloom non-stop from summer to fall. A magnet for hummingbirds and pollinators alike. Loves heat and sun. Dead heading is not necessary.
