Cuphea "Tiny Mice"


By Meanie

Cuphea "Tiny Mice" (Cuphea llavea (Cuphea))

I bought a couple of these to trail out of a wall mounted strawberry pot, but have now decided to grow one as a bush.

Absolutely spot on Surreylad!
I've put one in a proper pot so that I can see if it'll make a decent house plant......
