Name That Plant

Posted by on June 23rd 2012

The Question:

I bought a succulent plant @ Sunnyside, this past Sunday, and it is about 8″ tall, it is varigated and has tiny flowers on it that resemble candy corn. I asked what the name of the plant is as it had no plastic tag, and no one knew, I was hoping that someone could find out this information for me?

—Sharon

Our Answer:

Hi Sharon, Well, it could really be called the ‘Candy Corn Plant’! Candy Corn Plant (Cuphea micropetala)   Or there is a succulent in the store called a lipstick plant or goldfish plant that also comes to mind. Nematanthus wettsteinii
