Cuphea, also known as cigar plant or firecracker plant, is a genus containing about 260 species of annual and perennial flowering plants. Native to warm, temperate-to-tropical regions of the Americas, these native flowers are often used in gardens to lure in hummingbirds. David Griffith's garden is stocked with shrimp plants, Turk's Cap lilies, Autumn sage and the large abundant flowering Cuphea.
