Bat-Face Cuphea

Here is one of our cupheas with some white pentas on the background. Cupheas are attractive to butterflies & hummingbirds, and a big plus: once established they are pretty drought tolerant. Cupheas in pots will still need daily watering -as most potted plants (other than cactus & succulents) do.
Our Cupheas have taken a lot of abuse, this particular one was transplanted three times and still is thriving with no soil amendments or any special care.
