Plant Features
Bat Face Cuphea plant has a nice, long blooming season and is a broad-leafed evergreen in areas where winter temperatures don't fall below 25°F. This Cuphea does great as a landscape and in the pot! Brightly colored, this shrub is called Bat Face because at the end of each burgundy-hued tube, the blossom spreads out to form red ears and a royal-purple bat face! Showy to the extreme, you will love this pretty little shrub, almost as much as the hummingbirds and butterflies!

Bat Face Cuphea

I received my first order from GrowJoy just 3 weeks ago. They arrived beautify packaged to prevent damage in transit. I was delighted with the size of the plants, especially the well developed roots. Far superior to most other plants I have ordered on line. I live in Las Vegas, and in spite of the over 100 degree temperatures right now, I think the Bat Face Cuphea will flourish.
