Wulfenia Carinthiaca


Wulfenia CarinthiacaWulfenia Carinthiaca is a pretty and hardy perennial from the Corinthian Alps, suitable alike for rock-work or the border, throwing up spikes of blue flowers from May to July. During winter place it in a frame, as it is liable to rot in the open.

The Wulfenia Carinthiaca needs a light, rich, sandy soil and plenty of moisture when in growth. Cuttings will strike in sand; it may also be propagated by seeds or division.

The height of the Wulfenia Carinthiaca is about one feet.
