5-2-09 Cuphea Purpurea Has Survived The First Night

I have not seen data on the cuphea purpurea, but the cuphea llavea, which looks and perhaps would taste somewhat similar, says, "seldom damaged", as compared to "deer candy" for some plants. It's possible that the deer would be disturbed by the little bat faces on the llavea, and not be bothered by this one, but I'm taking my chances anyway.

My baby daughter gave me this for my birthday, and I set it in place last evening. Some may notice that it's among the dagger yucca, the silverado sage, and the salvia gregii. It should make a nice display there, if it manages to survive.
