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. Excellent cut flowers.

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

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.
