This superb hybrid of Sinningia warmingii x Sinningia tubiflora originated from an anonymous cross donated to the American Gesneriad Society's seed exchange. Sinningia 'Carolyn', named by John Boggan for New York gesneriad expert Carolyn Ripps, has been a fantastic performer in our trials since 2007. For us, it forms a 3' tall x 2' wide patch, which starts to spread in the third year, thanks to the Sinningia tubiflora parent. The 3' tall flower spikes, which first open in late June, are adorned with lightly fragrant, long-tubed, mauvy pink flowers with white throats. For us, Sinningia 'Carolyn' flowers throughout the summer...a superb selection!
