Cuphea Sugarbells

Cuphea Sugarbells
Roots faster than comparable cuphea, reducing costs and production time. It can be produced at lower temperatures, decreasing the overall cost of Spring greenhouse production. Requires less special treatment because of its high resistance to Oedema. This exciting new Summer item will drive more sales at retail, as a new cuphea for the consumer who knows and loves this class.  New color addition to the Cuphea collection from BallFloraPlant, this variety works great in mixed combos. Pollinator-friendly plant attracts hummingbirds all season long. Sugarbells is the only white cuphea currently on the market.
