Mexican Heather

 | 
Cuphea hyssopifolia
  • Type: Annual
  • Light: Part shade
  • Plant spacing: 18 to 24 inches apart
  • Plant size: 12 to 24 inches tall

Lavender-pink flowers and tiny leathery leaves make a delightful combination on this compact plant that has become very popular for pots, window boxes, and other containers. Also use in masses as a seasonal ground cover. Can be perennial in zones 9 to 11.

Tolerant of most soil types as long as they drain well, Mexican Heather will bloom continuously through the warm months. It is easy to pinch or shear to maintain a desired shape, although it is not necessary.

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available at your local stores, as we select and sell varieties best suited to the growing conditions in each region.
