Other info: Makes a nice cut flower, with large flowers on long stems. - - I was disappointed with this one.   I expected the flowers to be "blue" and in my opinion they are "purple" though the camera picked up on the blue in the flower.   To me this was a common color seen in the mix I purchase commercially and have sown. ~sad~









SALPIGLOSSIS grandiflora
(Painted Tongue)
** Salpiglossis Kew Blue **


#1697A - Salpiglossis grandiflora 'KEW BLUE' seeds:
(Input number of packets into checkbox -- $1.00 per packet)
[30 seeds per packet]
Germination: Sow seeds on sterilized media and do not cover seeds. Place container in dark location and maintain 70°F soil temperature. Seeds should begin germinating in 14-16 days.   However, because seedlings are tiny stemmed, they are very difficult to transplant.   This year I direct sowed seeds to garden location two (2) weeks before our last frost date, and they did very well.
