We are pleased to introduce a new hardy sinningia that comes from the breeding program of Kentucky's David Zaitlin who crossed two hardy species, Sinningia aggregata x Sinningia tubiflora. The result is a durable, non-running clump that emerges with 18" tall stalks of quilted green leaves, topped in early summer with butter-yellow tubular buds that open creamy white. The arching foliage lays flat after flowering, so allow a 3' wide area to keep it from swamping nearby plants. We have found that Sinningia 'Butter and Cream' really likes to be dry in the winter, so plant where it can get sun but has an overstory from one side that reduces winter moisture.
