WANTED: Bat Faced Cuphea

I saw this plant at Home Depot yesterday and was quite charmed by it. But I learned my lesson about impulse plant buying from a bleeding heart. >.< Has anyone kept this plant before? Does it do well in DFW? Sun/moisture/soil requirements?

I've got it and it likes the sun! It's said to attract hummers, but I don't have hummers because JD poisoned their minds against me.

Awesome, because sun's what I've got! You don't have any cuttings or seeds you'd like to share, do you? I have lots of stuff to trade - see my list! You can email me at if you'd rather.
