Botanical: Incarvillea delavayi
Common: Hardy Gloxinia
General Characteristics: Hardy gloxinia is a clump-forming perennial which typically grows 18-24" tall. Features clusters of trumpet-shaped, 2.5" long flowers with yellow throats. Clusters appear in summer atop sturdy, essentially leafless flower stalks which extend well above the basal, arching, fern-like, pinnately compound, medium green leaves (to 12" long). Plant them with other summer bloomers such as Lilies, Veronica, Penstemon, and Campanula.
