This gorgeous plant bears dark pink trumpet flowers in early summer and late spring, and takes less than a year to flower, growing well in direct sun. It is more compact than Incarvillea delavayi, and is rarely seen in the trade, and although it looks tender it is in fact utterly hardy and can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
Common name:Dwarf Hardy Gloxinia
