A touch of exotic for beds, borders and containers. Salpiglossis have compact well branched plant habit with continuous funnel shaped flower production. The plant has a 12-14 inch spread and height up to 14-16 inches. This annual is commonly known as Painted Tongue, and it is a native of South America and related to petunias. The Salpiglossis flower is trumpet-shaped and about 2 inches in width, and each flower is rich with velvety color and veins that are painted with a contrasting color. Salpiglossis Painted Tongue is perfect for the flower bed or in containers and baskets. The flowers are excellent for cutting and last in the vase. Salpiglossis has a proven performance in full sun with hot humid conditions. Prefers moist soils well drained. Enjoy the long bloom season of summer all the way through fall when other flowers are fading. In mild conditions I have seen them act as a perennial.
