(Salpiglossis sinuata)
EXCLUSIVE - Salpiglossis is one of the most dazzling of all old-fashioned flowers. Brand-new Stained Glass is a very showy and weather-tolerant variety bred in England. These gorgeous flowers bloom hard all season in rich chocolate, deep blue, vermilion red, glowing orange, gold and dark purple with striking bicolors. Many of the 3 inch throated blossoms have enchanting and exotic-looking butterfly wing tracings. The 1 1/2 foot basal branching plants are glorious in containers or to light up the garden with radiant color.

BEST TO START EARLY INDOORS

In spring, 6 to 8 weeks before last expected frost date, sow seeds 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix. Cover 1/4 inch deep with mix, keep moist and between 65 and 75° while awaiting germination. Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outdoors. Once seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant 2 to 3 inches apart into a deeper container or individual pots so root systems have room to develop. Feed every 2 weeks with half strength fertilizer. When plants are 3 to 4 inches tall, gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions and plant out in well-drained, fertile soil in the full sun.

 

THIN OR TRANSPLANT

Space seedlings 6 to 8 inches apart.


GROWING NOTES

Don’t plant these Chilean natives in the garden until risk of frost has passed. Transplant before seedlings start to form buds to get largest flowers and longest bloom. Give them a sheltered position, especially in very hot summer areas where a little afternoon shade is helpful, and keep plants moist and well weeded throughout the growing season for best performance.
