This is what that package said: One of the most dazzling of all old-fashioned flowers. Brand new Stained Glass is a very showy and weather-tolerant variety bred in England. These gorgeous flowers bloom hard all season in rich chocolate, deep blue, vermillion red, glowing orange, gold and dark purple with striking bicolors. Many of the 3 in throated blossoms have enchanting and exotic-looking butterfly wing tracings. The 1 1/2 foot basal branching plants are glorious in containers or to light up the garden with radiant color.

Salpiglossis makes a great front to mid border plant. I place them in front of my Peonies and the Painted Tongue blooms after the Peonies have finished. Start them indoors about seven to eight weeks before transplanting after the last frost. They should have some twigs or other small supports as their stems are leggy. The blooms can be tender, but are a unique addition to the border.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
Huntington Beach, California
Long Beach, California
Averill Park, New York
Raleigh, North Carolina
