Plant Description

Sinningias are African Violet relatives from Argentina and Uruguay that have sweet fuity-scented blooms that attract hummingbirds. Many gardeners are surprised to learn that they will survive Oklahoma winters if planted in a well-drained sunny location that has the proection of a wall or fence to block cold north winds. This hardy white form gives the garden a truly unique look with its pendulous long tubular blooms of pristine white. Sometimes called Hardy Gloxinia, this plant is low growing, tuber-forming and has soft fuzzy leaves.
