Cuphea


Cuphea is a genus of plants that contains about 250 species. It is native to temperate and tropical regions of the Americas. Cuphea is derived from a Greek word meaning “bent, curved or humped.” Their common names include Batface Cuphea and Cigar Plants. Cuphea ranges in height from low growing herbs to shrubs that grow up to six feet tall.

Many cuphea species are used to attract hummingbirds. Certain species of tropical cuphea also produce oil similar to coconut and palm oil. Cuphea can also be used in crop rotations of wheat and corn to add nutrients and yield to the following years crops.
