A beautiful Incarvillea, distinguishable from I. mairei by having many leaves (mature clump with often 20 leaves/plant) with 5-9 pairs of small lateral leaflets and large, carmine flowers with 2 white bands at the base of each lobe. Flowering in June.
Very handsome; it can be grown anywhere in the garden as long as it is a sunny location with good drainage.
Germination: Incarvillea sp. are among the easiest plants to grow from seeds. Actually, be careful not to spread all the seeds in just one small pot or you can share them with a friend. If started early in the season, they may flower in the first year.
