Re: Re: plant ID, "wonderflower"


I've grown the Incarvillea before with no summer heat problem in zone 5.
However it did not return the following year. I have since learned that
this is another plant that resents moisture while dormant. If possible
the tuber (?) should be planted at a slight angle as you would the large
fritillaries. I assume that over time the plant would more or less
straighten itself, but you might get more than one year out of it.
