Description

If you haven’t grown Cuphea before then you are missing out! These sizzling blooms with their punchy colours create a bold pop of colour in borders and containers all the way from late spring until autumn. The exquisite flowers are unlike other bedding annuals and invite closer inspection. The exotic-looking blooms feature unusual crinkly petals flaring from a tubular base with a violet throat. Cuphea Sweet Talk Red and Pink flaunt colour-saturated blooms and an exotic look that associates wonderfully with other bright-coloured annuals, whilst the cooler ‘Lavender Splash’ harmonises with pastel schemes. Although the flowers are relatively small, the plants are tightly branching and smothered with masses of flowers, creating dense masses of colour. Better still, the flowers don’t require any deadheading. Renowned for their heat tolerance and longevity, they will be more than happy in a sun-baked dry border or patio pot. Cuphea are packed with nectar providing a lively gathering spot for bees and butterflies. Height and spread: 30cm (12in).

Cuphea 'Sweet Talk Collection' comprises the following varieties:

  • Cuphea 'Sweet Talk Lavender Splash' – pale lilac petals with a violet blush.
  • Cuphea 'Sweet Talk Pink' – Bold rose pink with a violet tube.
  • Cuphea 'Sweet Talk Red' – Fabulous new bright red colour-way with a violet tube.

How to Grow
Pot up Cuphea plugs and grow them on in warm frost free conditions until plants are well grown. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting out in beds, borders, baskets and patio pots. Grow Cuphea in any fertile, well drained soil in full sun.
More Info
Feed and water Cuphea plants regularly throughout the growing season.

Thompson & Morgan strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3
