How to Say Vermillionaire® Large Firecracker Cuphea Plant
Plant Features

Vermillionaire® Large Firecracker Plants literally explodes with clusters of tubular shaped orange/red flowers that look very much like little firecrackers. They attract hummingbirds like no other! This well branched, upright grower works well as a bedding plant or in containers. Vermillionaire tolerates heat and humidity.


Vermillionaire Plant Care Instructions: Plants do best with consistently moist soil; however, they are forgiving if you miss a one or two waterings. No deadheading is necessary unless the plants start becoming leggy. If grown is southern gardens it should not be cut back in the winter. If grown as an annual in northern gardens it should be discarded after the plant dies for the winter.

Comment: Robust and vibrant plant that was an exceptionally easy transplant and will be an honoured addition to my landscape. It probably will be a perennial here in Montgomery, AL. with usage of frost cloth.

Comment: I waited a year to get this unique plant. Last year it was sold out. Very satisfied with quality of plant received. Foliage was healthy and it had a lot of blooms and buds. Grows pretty fast. Since I received it 3 weeks ago it has added 6 inches.
