Cannot have a hummingbird garden without this plant. When it is in bloom the hummers are all over it. Grows just as well in a large container as it does in the ground. Can take as much sun as you can give it and likes lots of water. Is also very easy to overwinter if you are in a colder growing zone. LOVE LOVE LOVE this plant and so glad that FBTS carries it!

This customer purchased the item at our site.
Love this hummingbird magnet. Started blooming 2 days after I planted it. They aren't hardy in my area so I order enough to plant several in the garden and others for containers. One of my "must haves".

Bought 4; put 2 in large pots on stands & 2 on floor next 2 stands. Hummingbirds were all over these like a kid eating "candy corn". We live n Texas- don't let them dry out. Indeed a hummingbird magnet.

I purchased 4 small Cuphea sometime in June and they arrived in great condition. I have never purchased plants online so I did not have high expectations. The plants looked very healthy, but small, as I ordered. Well, to my surprise, these 4 darling plants have grown into such hardy beauties for my precious Hummingbirds. They are in a a very sunny area and do well there. I was very pleased with the excellent customer service as well. Thank you for a wonderful experience! I am looking forward to purchasing more plants next year!

When I first ordered these plants they were on back order. True to their word, the company sent me an email when they were available again. They arrived on the specified date in beautiful condition. The plants were healthy and ready to be planted. They are thriving and have already been visited by hummingbirds.

This was my first experience with ordering plants from Flowers by the Sea. Exceptional service and attention to packing /shipping detail and follow-up, from Flowers by the Sea. Timely receipt of plants that were in very good condition. I planted them here in North Carolina a couple days after receipt ( about a month ago) and they are already blossoming! I will definitely consider ordering ...

Very nice healthy plants arrived at my door. Great packaging to keep them safe. I received emails for taking care of my plants, when they would be shipped and when to expect them. I have beautiful growing salvia that are blooming black and blue already. Extremely happy with this company. Really appreciate all the information. Thanks Flowers by the Sea...great job.

I ordered for the first time from Flowers by the Sea. I am very impressed by the quality of the plants (red hot pokers and a salvia). They were extremely well packaged and made it to the East from California in excellent condition. I am very excited to get them planted and enjoy the show! Thank you.

I was really impressed with the quality and size of the plants. Within a week or so, the Salvias doubled in fullness, and blooming like crazy! Just beautiful plants!

This spring I ordered from 5 different plant sites. FBTS was by far the best. The plants were larger and better branched. Your packaging was superb! Each plant was still moist around its roots and the dirt was held in each pot so none was shaken loose. Your service is the best! Thanks.

Received my Salvia's Clevelandii Winnifred Gillman's today, they were very well packed and much bigger specimen's than I have received from other nurseries. Customer Service was very nice and I like the idea of having Ask Mr. Sage in case of any problems. Thanks so much for getting the Salvia Clevelandii out there, once you have inhaled the smell it haunts you forever. The most beautiful sm...
