Details

Cuphea llavea 'Firecracker' produces petite, bright red flowers from summer to early fall. Extremely heat tolerant. This Cuphea is a stunning contrast to beds, borders and large containers with a bright purple theme. This is the closest replacement we know of on the market for 'Tiny Mice' which is no longer available.
