More Information About Sinningia
The genus Sinningia is a South American gesneriad (African violet relative) that is best known by most gardeners as 'florist's gloxinia' (Sinningia speciosa). We have been evaluating numerous Sinningia species and hybrids, and while some Sinningia species are tender to cold extremes, we find that many make great, perennial specimens for sunny gardens from Zone 7b south.
Hummingbirds and butterflies just love the tubular flowers of Sinningia, and several species including Sinningia tubiflora, are quite fragrant. Sinningia flowers come in a wide array of colors from white, to yellow, pink, red and all shades in between. Sinningia species are drought-tolerant and heat loving...perfect for the southern garden.
