This herbaceous perennial has deep-green divided, almost fern-like foliage. The flower stalks emerge before the foliage in spring and produce trumpet-shaped white flowers in early summer. Distinctive, long seed pods follow the flowers. The thick, fleshy roots of Incarvillea delavayi ‘Snowtop’ do not like wet soil, especially in winter. It is therefore important to provide good drainage at planting time.
