Cuphea ID

mark4321_gwMarch 12, 2013

This is a Cuphea in my sister's yard. Nothing she grows has ID tags... I've been calling this Cuphea 'David Verity' but I just wanted to get confirmation. I know that there are related, similar hybrids/varieties.

Thanks.

Its certainly Cuphea ignea -- bit tough to ID down to a specific cultivar.

Regards

Cuphea 'David Verity' is thought to be a hybrid of Cuphea ignea and Cuphea micropetala.

So this is definitely pure Cuphea ignea and not that hybrid? I would imagine that a trained eye can distinguish the two.
