Painted Tongue, Kew Blue (Organic)
Salpiglosis sinuata. 75 days.
Captivating, velvety dark purple trumpet-shaped flowers that bloom continuously up slender-stemmed sprays that reach 31⁄2′ tall. These delicate flowers are not suitable for bouquets, but are a show- stopper in the garden and very attractive to pollinators. Plants may need staking to prevent lodging, but we didn’t have this problem. Sow this annual in early spring for flowers from June through September.
