The Q&A Archives: False Heather Life Span

Question: Hi,

Can you tell me if Dwarf False Heather is a annual plant? If so, does this mean the plant needs to be replaced annually?

Thank you.

Answer: Cuphea, or false heather, will be perennial in your gardening region unless you're in the mountains and your garden experiences frost or snow. Cuphea is native to Mexico and Central America and thrives in heat and humidity. By the way - false heather is also called Hawaiian Heather! Best wishes with your garden!
