I'm pretty sure it was Cuphea viscosissima, pretty rare plant. Anybody have seeds? Mine disappeared years ago.

Linda, I have a pack posted in either my swap or Horntoad's. I think it is all I left have but I will look once I recover from Christmas and let you know if I dig up a few more.

Yep, Alana it's in my swap. I actually have it in my wishlist. I was going to try and get it to send to Linda.

Okay. I'll look tomorrow and see if there is more in the seed cabinet. I'm too full and sleepy to waddle up to it right now. Hilarious!

So I could not stop thinking about it until I checked. Linda, I can send you about twenty seeds if you want to send me your address.

Thanks, Linda for posting this...I like cupheas - added this one to my wish list; haven't seen this purple one.

Wow! I did not know this species before reading this thread. Thanks, Linda. Adding it to my wishlist :)
