Incarvillea delavayi


Garden Gloxinia

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.290.050


This plant features large, bright-pink trumpet flowers, similar in effect to a Gloxinia. Deeply-cut green foliage appears at the base, with stems rising higher bearing clusters of blossoms. Not the easiest plant to succeed with, particularly in regions with hot, humid summers. The fleshy taproot must have excellent drainage, especially in regions with wet winters, so best success is usually had by growing in a rock garden or raised bed. A winter mulch is recommended in Zones 5 and 6. Worth growing even as an annual. Remove faded flowers to encourage more buds. Excellent for cutting.
