Info

Fabulous, rare and gorgeous relative of violets and gloxinias from the mountains of Vietnam with fuzzy, deeply veined leaves up to 6" long, changeably variegated in green and silver on top -- sometimes quite dark -- with red-purple undersides! The summer flowers are spectacular -- flared white to cream tubes with purple stripes. Easy to grow, spreading by underground rhizomes, the new growth emerging in spring. Bright light with afternoon shade in well-drained soil kept evenly moist. Reported frost hardy in USDA zone 7.
