Hardy Gloxinia Growing and Maintenance Tips

Incarvillea grow best in an average to dry, sandy, well-drained soil, in full sun to partial shade. Will continue to bloom for several weeks if deadheaded. Winter mulching is recommended for our region, and then should be removed in early spring. Incarvillea have a large taproot, so moving it once it established is not recommended.
