Salpiglossis is also called 'Painted Tongue' because of the bi-colored centers in the pansy-like blooms. The unique coloring of these beauties is striking in the garden.

Care: Once they are happy and established in your garden, they are drought-tolerant, but will bloom more with more water.
Blooms: Mid summer through Fall. Deadhead the blooms regularly (meaning cut the flowers for bouquets, or if the flowers die on the plant cut them off) to encourage more blooms.
Annual, will not overwinter.
Ships: as 3 plants in 2" diameter pots, in the Spring.
