    A few years ago Chris was at movie world and off in the distance he thought he bloom24.jpg (21628 bytes)saw his favorite border BoxOz® Lonicera. As Chris got closer he couldn’t believe his eyes it was covered in bright pink flowers. Once Chris got close he could see the hedge was actually a Cuphea or Mexican hedge that had been closely clipped. Chris knew that Cuphea hadbloom22.jpg (34477 bytes) long been a popular small flowering shrub in Melbourne but was amazed to see how beautiful it looked as a formal flowering border.

  There are many different cultivars of Cuphea andbloom25.jpg (19065 bytes) Chris set out to find one that would make the thickest and bushiest hedge and have an attractive coloured flower.

  He eventually found a cultivar in a Queensland nursery that had a leaf almost as large as English Box and it had strong lateral growth so it would stay bushy on the sides when clipped hard. The cultivar also had a profuse flowering of fine hot pink flowers throughout the summer months.
