Incarvillea

 

a genus of perennial herbs of the family Bigoniaceae. The leaves are usually pinnate; the flowers, in final inflorescences, are large, with a bilabiate, tubular, yellowish or purple pink corolla. Approximately 15 species are found in the mountains of Southeast and Central Asia; there are two species in the USSR—one grows in Middle Asia, the other in the Far East. Incarvillea plants are used as ornamentals.
