Incarvillea delavayi


Incarvillea delavayi has masses of large, exotic, bright pink, trumpet-shaped flowers in late spring.

It’s curious to me why I don’t see this stunning perennial in more gardens. Hardy gloxinia has masses of large, exotic, bright pink, trumpet-shaped flowers in late spring. The lush foliage looks somewhat like Acanthus (Bear’s Breeches). It will rebloom if cut back after flowering. Photo courtesy of Walters Gardens.
