Sinningia piresiana

I love this gesneriad.  I grow many Sinningias and apart from S. leucotricha this is one of my favourites. This species has the most stunning flowers of all Sinningias, Notice the hairs on the cherry pink tubular flowers, with gorgeous thick crimson stripes towards the end, and inside the flower. This comes from Brazil as is the case with most in this genus. It has fuzzy green leaves that form a whorl of 6 leaves, and has a nice plump tuber.
