Incarvillea Delavayi (Pack of 3 Bulbs) Incarvillea Pink Incarvillea Delavayi 'Hardy Gloxinia'

Incarvillea Delavayi is a hardy perennial that has beautiful exotic looking mauve flowers with a fantastic fern-like foliage.

Incarvillea Delavayi can be planted in pots or straight into your garden. This hardy perennial needs a nice well-drained, sunny or partial-shaded position. Also known as the hardy gloxinia but is not related to the Gloxinia, Incarvillea Delavayi has flower stems that will grow to roughly 50-60cm whilst the fern like foliage will become thick and strong with a 30cm spread.

Harts' Hint
"Make sure you dead head to prolong its flowering period, this will range from mid spring to mid summer."

​​​​​​How to Plant your Incarvillea

  • Incarvillea are hardy and can be planted directly outside in the spring.
  • If spring temperatures drop below -10C they can be potted up and grown on indoors. Plant the tubers into temporary pots in spring and grow-on in a sheltered position to transplant later when the risk of harsh frosts have passed. Alternatively, you can plant them directly into your borders providing the soil is not frozen.

Planting in Pots

  • Plant your Incarvillea tuber upright with the thinner neck of the plant just beneath the surface. If they are already in leaf, the leaves should be exposed above the soil surface.
  • Space the plants around 12-20cm apart.
  • Plant in a good-quality multipurpose compost. 
  • Place in a sunny position. 
  • Water regularly. Allow the soil to become dry between watering.

Planting in Outside

  • Find a position in full sun with free-draining soil.
  • Plant your Incarvillea tuber upright with the thinner neck of the plant just beneath the surface. If they are already in leaf, the leaves should be exposed above the soil surface.
  • Space the plants around 12-20cm apart.
  • Water regularly. Allow the soil to become dry between watering.
