Incarvillea delavayi
Common Name: Hardy Gloxinia Family: Bignoniaceae (The Catalpa Family)

Incarvillea delavayi
Zoom In Photo:

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.

Geogrpahical Origin:
Asia - China and Japan
Native Habitat:
Grassy places and scrub around 2000m. Pastures and open grassland, 2400-3500 m., but it is now uncommon in its native range.
