Cuphea ignea - Cigar Plant


Cuphea ignea - Cigar Plant (Cuphea ignea - Cigar Plant)

This plant is only suppose to grow to 3ft/1m. However, the plants here in San Diego, CA. don't know that because they grow to more than twice that height here. This plant has thousands of flowers all year! Photo taken in Balboa Park.
