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.

Needs water 2-3 x a day during July/August. Hummer's feed from these more than any other plants except 4 Anisacanthus wrightii. This Cigar plant is my GO-TO Summer Plants in 100+ degree weather. I forgot 2 place rocks or bricks n bottom of pot 2 weigh it down & it toppled over during a strong thunderstorm. All plants have reached 36"+ tall. Cannot strongly suggest everyone 2 try this plant.

This plant blooms continuously from Spring to Fall. It is an easy plant to grow and propagate. Every garden should have this plant. Don't know what utahxericman did, but I have had no problem growing this plant and have been greatly rewarded by...

Terrific plants! Nice size to the plants (much larger than competitors), with great root systems (have spent quite a bit of time in the pots instead of recent transplants), and well-packed. Will definitely be a repeat customer.

My Salvias arrived fresh and lovely. I have been luxuriating in their fragrance this past week. "Doris," the name I've given my Salvia dorisiana is so nicely vertical. She looks particularly regal among my houseplants and smells like she is wearing a bit of fruity perfume. Thanks for the great plants and shipping.
The plants arrive in great condition and have started growing without any problems. The whole experience was very favorable. I highly recommend them.

Finally getting to tell you how pleased I am with the Salvias I ordered. They were better than I expected.Packed beautifully to make the cross country trip. I have planted them in my garden and am patiently waiting for them to bloom. One has started Salvia macrophylla Tall Form. The color is beautiful. My only fear is living in the Northeast our weather can be unpredictable and fall sometimes c...

I really can not say enough positive things about Kermit and Vikki!You will not find better salvias or better service anywhere.I have ordered a number of thimes since I found their site earlier this year. The plants and the service have been the best I have ever rece...

I recently decided to overhaul a large sun garden in the front of my new home. After removing all of the existing plants and weeds, I realized that I had quite a bit more space to fill than I originally anticipated. Every gardeners dream! More space! So I began looking for perennials I have wanted for a long time and found FBTS had two kniphofia that were unavailable locally. I had my reservati...
Careful attention to detail wins my loyalty. The plants arrived in flawless condition. Their wrapping paper still damp!!!! The plants them selves are hearty and healthy. I love exploring the world of salvias in my challenging environment.

I ordered three red sage plants from Flowers by the Sea. When they arrived, they were all healthy, thriving, extremely well-developed plants, packed with roots and quite a good size. (I live in Virginia, so they were shipped all the way across the country.) They were tenderly packed, in a large box,and each completely wrapped in a thick white paper -- and were easy to remove from the box (this ...
