(Large Firecracker Plant) Standing Tall, Cuphea VERMILLIONAIRE® is really turning heads. Clusters of orange, tubular-shaped flowers, with yellow tips, explode all over VERMILLIONAIRE®, attracting hummingbirds and butterflies. Standing 18-28 inches tall, VERMILLIONAIRE® is long blooming, drought and heat tolerant and requires no deadheading. Plant in full sun, and the orange and yellow flowers continuously bloom all season long. VERMILLIONAIRE® has a mounding habit that works great in borders, containers and in mass. Like all Cuphea, VERMILLIONAIRE® love the heat.

  4. Kim D

    What do the seeds look like and how do I gather the seeds for next year?
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you

      To my knowledge, these are a vegetative plant that does not come from seeds, but from cuttings.

    I ordered 4 plants. I was so impressed with the way they were packaged! Nice large box-plenty of sturdy brown paper wrapped around each plant. They were well watered. They arrived in excellent shape. These were in the best condition of any plant I have ordered online. I have already placed another order for other plants with them. I highly recommend them!

    Tried this one last year, grew in full sun with very little care. I would recommend adding this one to a Hummingbird Garden!
