This superb Brazilian collection of Sinningia speciosa, the parent of the modern florist gloxinia, has been reliably hardy for us, provided it is grown in well-drained soil and kept dry over winter. The fuzzy olive-green leaves form a flat rosette, topped in July and August with a cluster of foxglove-like flowers atop 6" stalks. Each flower is white with a dramatic dark blue-purple interior. Our best results have been in sites with 2 to 4 hours of full sun. Where Sinningia 'Carangola' isn't hardy, it makes an easy-to-grow, outstanding potted specimen!
