Salpiglossis, Cafe Au Lait
These beautiful blooms are a striking departure from the typical flower colors. The petals come in a range of coffee tones, from mocha to light roast caramel, with a golden throat. Stunning 2-inch trumpet flowers are set atop stout, 8-12 inch stems. Plants are best suited to containers and the front of the bed or border, and they look especially stunning when planted closely (4 inches apart is best). Pelleted seed.
