GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The Main Picture Is A Stock Photo Only And Show How The Tubers Will Look When Fully Mature.

Hardy Gloxinia Is Not Really A Gloxinia; It Is More Closely Related To Campsis And Trumpet Vines. It Is A Fleshy Tap-Rooted (Tuber) Perennial Native To The High Elevations Of China. “Incarvillea” Is A Beautiful Plant With Low-Growing Clumps Of Glossy, Deeply Divided Leaves Which Emerge Late In Spring Forming A Rosette And Are Long And Feather-Like; The Individual Leaflets Are Narrowly Oval To Lance-Shaped With Scalloped Or Toothed Margins. 12-24 Inch Leafless Unbranched Flower Stems Arise Topped By Clusters Of Flowers Each Of Which May Be As Much As 3 Inches Across. Each Large Flower Is Trumpet-Shaped With Spreading Lobes In Shades Of Rose-Pink With Yellow And Purple Throats. The First Few Blooms On Each Plant Often Appear Before The Rosettes Of Leaves Have Fully Developed. “Incarvillea” Will Re-Bloom If Old, Spent Flowers Are Removed. The Flowers Are Followed By A Capsule With Winged Seeds Inside In The Autumn.

“Incarvillea Delavayi” Has Received The Royal Horticultural Society’s Award Of Garden Merit (Agm) Which Is For Plants Of Outstanding Excellence.

“Incarvillea Can Be Used As An Accent Plant To Add A Bright Splash Of Colour In The Border Or Rock Garden. They Work Well Along The East Side Of Buildings Where They Would Receive Good Morning Sun But Is Sheltered In The Winter. The Crowns Are Easily Damaged And Plants Are Very Late To Emerge In Sprin, So It Is Recommended, That You Mark Where They Are Planted. If You Are Careful In The Spring And Don’t Disturb Them, You Will Be Rewarded With A Clump Of Exotic Flowers For Years That Will Amaze Visitors To Your Garden.

Hardy Gloxinia Thrives In Average To Sandy, But Moist Soils; However Wet Winters May Damage The Plant. Full Sun To Part Shade Is Preferred.

Tubers Should Be Buried 3-6 Inches Below Soil Level And Spaced 12-15 Inches Apart. Plants Should Be Mulched In The Autumn With Dry Straw Or Some Other Mulch, To Protect The Crowns From Winter Winds

The Tubers Can Be Overwintered. Lift In The Autumn, Before The First Frost And Store The Tubers In A Dry Position Preferably In Dry Sand In A Frost-Free Place For The Winter Season To Grow Again Next Year. It Is Possible To Divide And Reset Clumps, But The Plants Flourish Most Vigorously If Allowed To Remain Undisturbed.
