Description:

Cuphea ignea is also known as the cigar flower or firecracker plant. Native to Mexico and the West Indies, this tropical subshrub has dense, evergreen branches that bloom year-round with small, tube-shaped flowers. These flowers, bright red in color, look like lit cigars or firecrackers. Hummingbirds and butterflies love them. Attractive leaves are dark green and oval-shaped, less than 2-inches long.

Plant Cuphea ignea in full sun or part shade, preferably in well-drained soil. While this plant is fairly tolerant of heat, is does best with regular moisture. It resists most pest and disease problems. Consider this one for borders, edgings, beds, hanging baskets, or containers. It can also be grown indoors.
