Maintenance Notes: 

Vermillionaire, like all Cuphea is a heat lover and will do best in warm gardens with bright light. Always keep this plant in full sun for best flowering and to avoid it stretching in the shade.

Keep moist throughout the growing season, regular fertilizing will keep it full and constantly flowering. Once established Vermillionaire does not require a lot of water, but water regularly until it has grown a bit.

This plant is a perennial in USDA zones 8 and higher, but should be considered an annual in colder climates. If you are in a marginally hardy area, an application of light mulch (like pine needles) about 6 inches deep and a foot wide. When the threat of frost is past, remove the layer of mulch. The plant should not be cut back in the winter.  If it has dead plant material or is leggy in spring, you can trim it back once new growth begins.

Great hummingbird attractor! They love this plant, one of their preferred plants in most gardens.
