Bat faced Cuphea (Cuphea llavea) has such an interesting flower! When you look at it up close, it does look like a bat's face.
I bought this plant about a month ago. Before planting, I cut it back so it could concentrate on developing a good root system. Today is the first day that it bloomed! It's a small plant now, but it will grow to 3 feet next spring.
Does anyone know the name of this catepillar? When I was taking pictures of the Cuphea, I noticed it walking past my foot. He moved fast! Hopefully it will turn into a pretty butterfly or moth.
