My Cuphea ignea 'David Verity' is finally blooming! I don't know what the problem was this year over previous years but no matter how much sun, fresh soil, water, or fertilizer it got, it just wouldn't come into flower. I am happy to report that it has several clusters of flowers opening now and I hope that my hummers start investigating it. Also I got the first bloom yesterday on my Cuphea schumanii...YES [linked image]

I can't figure out why it took so long for it to bloom this year as it always started blooming right after I put it out in the spring in previous years but at least it is blooming now.

At least now there is still time for the hummers to get some use out of them, good for you.

I just hope they hurry up and discover it. I moved the pot up to the top of the compost bin so it would be more visible and keeping my fingers crossed.
