Incarvillea sinensis 'Cheron'
Floppy plant. First time we're growing this one. I must be doing something wrong, because in a full season of fairly cushy conditions, my plants are still smallish, without much of a presence. They've been blooming almost continuously (already as seedlings under the growlights) - but usually just with a single flower on each plant.
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...

|Stephen||Jun 16, 2012||I think it likes plenty of sun and hot, dryish conditions. 'Fairly cushy conditions' probably don't suit it. My plants, grown from seed this year, are becoming very bushy, not very floppy, and are producing flower buds, about three months after sowing. I started them in small pots, then planted out into a very sunny, warm position. It took them a couple of weeks to start to grow away well after planting out, but now they're looking very good. I garden in Spain, with generally warm, dryish conditions.|
