"Pink Bunny" Cuphea

Welcome to the loveable "Pink Bunny" Cuphea!  This fun perennial puts out inch-long blooms that resemble little bunnies with outstretched arms.  But not just a few bunnies.  We're talking hundreds and hundreds of bunnies!  These multicolored blooms appear non-stop from spring through fall.  This is an easy-to-grow plant that is loved by kids - and also hummingbirds!

The "Pink Bunny" Cuphea forms a neat bush 3 to 4 feet tall and wide.  It works well in most garden settings, whether in a crowded cottage garden, or by itself in a pot on a sunny patio.  The tubular blooms are reddish-pink with a white "head", and have striped, pinkish-purple petals that look like ears, arms and feet.  I'm unsure of the species name of this Cuphea.  I believe it comes from Central America.

The Pink Cuphea is easy to grow.  It's been known to handle temperatures in the 90s with no problem.  I recommend protecting it from freezing temps, although it can probably handle a few degrees of frost.  It grows well indoors.  I grow it in part sun, but it is said to enjoy full sun as well.  It prefers moist, well-draining soil.  Over about 40% humidity is recommended.
