Mexican Heather Cuphea hyssopifolia 'Allyson'

Mexican Heather

Mexican Heather produces a pretty, dark green foliage and adorns itself with an abundance of delicate blooms, ranging in shades of lavender, pink and/or white. The mounding, semi-trailing growth habit and colorful blooms makes this a great choice for landscape, baskets and containers! Its blooms are scattered throughout the foliage and bloom all through early Summer and Fall. Mexican Heather is desired most for its delicate, ever-blooming blossoms, glossy green foliage, heat tolerance, drought resistance, low maintenance and mounding, semi-trailing growth habit for landscape, beds, baskets and containers. This is a great annual for early Spring, Summer and Fall.
