Salpiglossis, also called painted tongue, has velvety flowers with metallic coloration and veination that has to be seen to be believed! A gardener in the early 1900s described them as having "bewildering combinations". Flowers beckon admirers to take a closer look, and are irresistible to butterflies. Performs best in cool weather.

These are exquisite flowers, but I only seem to have received seeds that produced purple or yellow petals.

My salpiglossis started producing a variety of colors later in the season. Beautiful!

I ordered seed for what we normally call "Painted Tongue" for the first time from Botanical Interests and am very pleased with the results. The seeds had a very high rate of germination and grew strong and healthy, now beginning to bloom with the beautiful flowers I remember so well. I'm so happy to see them again and enjoy growing them.

Only 2 plants made it into flowering stage. The flowers are tiny, whitish an look like weeds, but the rest of the plant looks like Salpiglossis. Very disappointing!

Owner Response: Hi Monika, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. It sounds like weeds may have come up instead of salpiglossis which is common in newly cultivated areas. For best results start these seeds indoors. Our seeds are tested frequently by a third-party laboratory to ensure germination exceeds federal and our own standards. A customer service agent will be with you shortly to help.

Beautiful

These flowers are beautiful! The color patterns remind me of sparkling stained glass windows. I would give them 5 stars except they are a bit tricky to grow and slugs and snails LOVE the young plants.
