WHEN TO SET OUTSIDE
After all danger of frost has passed.
PLACEMENT & CULTIVATION
Cuphea 'Cherrybells' is small but mighty, boasting massive flower power on a compact plant that withstands high heat and blooms all summer. Self-cleaning, it drops old flowers as new blooms open, and its freely-branching nature ensures a full, mounded form. Minimal care requirements, for regular fertilization and watering are all that's needed to keep it productive. It's an excellent choice for garden edging, containers, and window boxes.
About 1" per week. While somewhat drought tolerant, greater moisture availability will increase growth and blooming.
Fertilize with an organically sourced water-soluble fertilizer once per month. Alternatively, mix in a balanced granular fertilizer after planting.
Diseases & Pests:
No major problems. If aphids or whiteflies appear spray with Insecticidal soap. Avoid root rots by placing in a well-drained setting.
