Cuphea purpurea-Cuphea, Rabbit Ears. This is the second year for this plant in the gardens in Fargo but the first year for it in Dickinson. Although it did well at both locations it performed better over the course of the season in Dickinson. In Fargo, aphids were on it early but didn't seem to bother the plant; the aphids were gone by August.
