Mexican Cigar red Firecracker - 20 seeds (Cuphea ignea)

In stock

What a fun and unique bushy plant that can be grown from Cigar Plant seeds! Cuphea Ignea is a plant that will flower continuously once established from flower seeds. It goes by several common names: Mexican Cigar Plant, Cigar Plant, Firecracker Plant, and Cigarette Plant. As the name suggests, the Cuphea blooms are cylinder-shaped like a cigar or a firecracker. The Cuphea Ignea plants have a bushy growth habit with dark green, showy foliage that is glossy. Cuphea Ignea plants are tender perennials meaning that in frost-free zones they will form an evergreen, rounded bushy plant. However, Mexican Cigar Plant will grow quickly and bloom profusely, and can easily be grown as an annual from flower seeds.
