WHEN TO SET OUTSIDE
After all danger of frost has passed.
PLACEMENT & CULTIVATION
Cuphea 'Honeybells' is small but mighty, boasting massive flower power on a compact plant that can withstand high heat and continue in bloom all summer. This self-cleaning plant drops old flowers as new ones form, and its freely-branching nature ensures a full mounded form. With minimal care requirements, regular fertilization and watering are all that's needed to keep it healthy. It's an excellent choice for garden edging, containers, and windowboxes.
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.
