Clarkia rubicunda
‘Shamini’

Clarkia rubicunda 'Shamini' Clarkia rubicunda 'Shamini'

Clarkia rubicunda is the last Clarkia to go into bloom in my garden & it keeps blooming all through Summer without any additional water. The ‘Shamini’ selection (probably a hybrid) blooms longer & later than the species & often lasts into September. It also has a unique upright habit that can reach up to 5’, but normally stays about 3’ tall & wide. The 2.5-3” flowers are single to semi-double & intense carmine red with a lighter edge. In the garden it makes a stunning combination with Clarkia ‘Aurora’ & Nigella hispanica. In the vase it is a great long-stemmed & long-lasting flower. And, like all of our Clarkias, they’ll drop their seeds, sprout with the rains and flower again each year without you having to water! Fine in average to poor well-drained soil but spectacular with a bit of compost added. Available until mid-April.
