Yes, with all the rain it has been a good year for David Verity and Vermillionaire. Currently I am not seeing much use on them the birds go to Amistad and guaranitica in the morning but mostly feed on the Dagga, Leonotis nepetifolia, morning and evening. It is somewhat annoying since there is over 40 feet of waist high David Verity this year and they are lush. Before the Dagga went into heavy flower production almost all the evening action was on the Cuphea.
It is time to take cuttings if one plans to keep Cuphea. I think I will also fish one out into a pot for the winter.
