(aka: Seemannia 'Little Red') Gloxinia 'Little Red' is an amazing John Boggan hybrid, a cross of Gloxinia nematanthodes and Gloxinia purpurascens, that we've had on trial since 2011. Although it emerges very late, usually around July 1 (NC), Gloxinia 'Little Red' is a showstopper from mid-summer until frost. The dark cinnamon stems are clothed with thumb-sized, bronzy green leaves. Each leaf axil is home to small, tubular, scarlet-orange flowers...a favorite of hummingbirds as well as two-legged garden visitors. Gloxinia 'Little Red' is quite vigorous and makes a 16" tall x 3' wide patch in 4 years. Dry soils during cold winters are key to survival.
