Photo - Starfire Cuphea (Cuphea lanceolata 'Starfire')

Starfire Cuphea is a terrific hummingbird perennial for San Diego.
This plant blooms all year in the coastal areas and for 10 months
in colder inland areas.  Starfire Cuphea will reach about 3 feet wide
and tall. The plant is self cleaning, so just give it a haircut with
some hedge trimmers in early Spring to keep it tidy.
