(Syn.: Cuphea oreophila), Christmas Cigar Flower, Salvadoran Cigar Plant



Cuphea salvadorensis

$8.95  

Rare cuphea with bright orange-red 1½ inch tubular flowers with green tips at the mouth of the floral tubes. In Hawaii, an unusual Christmas lei is sometimes made from the flowers because of its bright red and green holiday colors. Mounding shrub to 5 feet. Give full sun, protection from frost. Hummingbirds love it. From Southern Mexico and El Salvador. Photos by Forest & Kim Starr (USGS) from Plants of Hawaii. Tropicos.org of Missouri Botanical Garden lists C. oreophila as a synonym, even though others list it as a different species. It sure looks the same to us. Lythraceae
