Cuphea glutinosa is an amazing North American native, found only in a few counties in east Texas and west Louisiana. It's one of the finest part sun groundcovers we've ever grown...native or otherwise. The low mounding 8" tall x 4' wide (10 years) semi-evergreen mats consist of arching, wiry, reddish stems, clothed with tiny, pointed green leaves. A patch of Cuphea glutinosa is covered from late April through November with hundreds of small, light purple flowers...each one with dark stripes radiating out from the center...extremely cute and a superb groundcover! Cuphea glutinosa should not be used by gardeners who need a glutin-free landscape.
