INCARVILLEA DELAVAYI SNOWTOP
Clusters of exotic-looking, trumpet-like, yellow throated white flowers open from early to midsummer, whilst the thick, bold, divided leaves of this attractive plant form a backdrop for the large, showy blooms. This easy-to-grow gem will bloom for many weeks, beginning in late spring, if regularly deadheaded, and is ideal for adding an exotic touch to a sunny herbaceous border, and is even perfect for growing in a container on a sunny patio.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
