Coral and Copper Foliage with Orange Blooms in Summer

This plant combo, composed of a simple trio of plants is perfect for containers or as a front-of-the-border vignette in a mixed border planting scheme. Its success is reliant on the rich red and coppery foliage of varied texture, and the exceptionally long-blooming, uber-easy-care Vermillionaire cuphea which produces tubular blooms, adored by hummers, from early summer to killing frost, without deadheading!
