Salpigwhatnow?

Salpiglossis, aka Painted Tongue or Stained Glass flower.  As in one gorgeous, easy to grow annual that comes in a bunch of colours, with and without the 'tongue' markings.  I am growing two varieties this year, this one pictured below and a bright, cheery yellow one.  I'm excited to try overwintering them in the greenhouse, as given enough time - Jan and I got our late in the season this year - they form a tidy shrub covered from early summer to frost in blankets of flowers
