Plant Features

Lavender Lace Cuphea (Cuphea hyssopifolia), is a delightful, low-growing plant that forms a dense, mounding carpet of fine, lacy foliage in a soft, blue-green hue. From summer through fall, this charming plant is adorned with a profusion of small, tubular flowers in a lovely shade of lavender, creating a soothing and romantic atmosphere in the garden.

Lavender Lace Cuphea is perfect for borders, rock gardens, or as a ground cover in sun to partially shaded areas. Its compact, spreading habit makes it an excellent choice for filling in gaps between larger plants or softening the edges of walkways and garden beds.

In addition to its attractive appearance, Lavender Lace Cuphea is a valuable source of nectar for pollinators, particularly bees and butterflies. The small, tubular flowers are easily accessible to these beneficial insects, making this plant a welcome addition to any pollinator-friendly garden.

This low-maintenance plant thrives in well-draining soil and is relatively drought-tolerant once established. Regular watering during dry spells will keep it looking its best, but be careful not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot. Deadheading is not necessary for continuous blooming; however, light pruning after the first flush of flowers can encourage a more compact shape and renewed blooming.

As a tender perennial, Lavender Lace 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 looking for a plant that combines delicate beauty, continuous blooming, and the ability to attract pollinators, Lavender Lace Cuphea is an excellent choice. Its soft, romantic appearance and easy care requirements make it a lovely addition to any garden seeking a tranquil, inviting atmosphere and a haven for bees and butterflies.

I have a flower bed filled with smaller plants, this is perfect for it, hoping to get perennial benefits from it, and blooms all summer long.
