Plant Features

Flamenco Cha Cha Cuphea (Cuphea llavea) is a vibrant, eye-catching variety of the Bat Face Cuphea, offering a lively display of color and movement in the garden. This compact, mounding plant features an abundance of small, tubular flowers in a fiery blend of red and purple, each adorned with two elongated petals that dance in the breeze like a flamenco dancer's skirt.

Flamenco Cha Cha Cuphea is perfect for adding a burst of energy to borders, containers, or as a dynamic focal point in garden beds. Its continuous blooming habit ensures a captivating display of color from late spring through fall, making it a reliable choice for season-long interest.

In addition to its stunning appearance, Flamenco Cha Cha Cuphea is a magnet for hummingbirds and butterflies, providing a rich source of nectar for these fascinating creatures. The tubular flowers are perfectly shaped for hummingbirds to access, making this plant an essential component of any pollinator-friendly garden.

This low-maintenance variety thrives in full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil. It is relatively drought-tolerant once established, but regular watering during dry spells will keep it looking its best. Deadheading is not necessary for continuous blooming; however, light pruning can help maintain a tidy shape and encourage fresh growth.

As a tender perennial, Flamenco Cha Cha Cuphea is winter hardy in USDA zones 9-11. In colder regions, it can be grown as an annual or brought indoors during the winter months to protect it from freezing temperatures.

If you're seeking a plant that combines dynamic color, continuous blooming, and the ability to attract pollinators, Flamenco Cha Cha Cuphea is an excellent choice. Its lively appearance and easy care requirements make it a captivating addition to any garden looking to create a festive atmosphere and a welcoming environment for hummingbirds and butterflies.
