Description:

A much smaller version of the favorite Mexican Heather. This tiny plant has dark magenta flowers throughout the year. Use it in a miniature or fairy garden and it will not need much shearing.

This is a much smaller version of Mexican false heather. It is a tiny tropical evergreen sub-shrub with many charming attributes. It is native to Mexico and Guatemala. When used in the miniature or fairy garden, it should not need much shearing. Trumpet-shaped flowers have dark magenta petals and green calyx tubes. Hummingbirds and butterflies appreciate the flowers. They will bloom between summer and first frost. 

When grown as a house plant, be sure to provide it lots of bright light. Protect from direct light. Outside, it can be used in borders, beds, edgings, or ground cover. Also works as a houseplant, container plant, or hanging basket. If you do decide to grow in a container, consider overwintering the plant indoors.
