Plant Description

I don?t know what impresses me more about this plant, the fact that it often survives our Oklahoma winters or the fact that it blooms well during our hottest summers. Tante Hardy Sinningia is a hybrid developed by Ted Bona that blooms with sweet scented salmon-pink colored flowers. A close relative of African violets, this plant sometimes goes by the name of Violet Slipper Gloxinia. To survive winter it should be planted in a well-drained soil in a protected location or it can be placed in a container which can be brought into a garage to over-winter in a dormant state.
