Salpiglossis, Kew Blue

100% of 100

Intense deep blue, nearly-black blooms remind us of a dark night. Flecks of pollen splash across the petals like stars in the sky. Excellent focal plant, plays so beautifully when planted with white blooms, like moonflower. Try in mixed plantings or containers. This rare painted tongue is deeply dramatic, sure to draw attention all summer long. Plants are 2-2.5' tall.
