The pleasure of growing Sinningia

It's winter time in Taiwan , this winter is cold , the Sinningia grows slowly or stays in dormancy. No more updated photos but I got some stock shots of my Sinningia in summer. :-) This picture was taken on 2008/08/28. See the colorful blossoms , this is the pleasure of growing lots of Sinningia. :-)

Sinn. HCY's Tropical Island

This new HCY's hybrid of Sinningia shows a nice combination in color and plant form by using Sinn. reitzii. The plant is compact , it doesn't grow tall as Sinn. reitzii , but the red color of Sinn. reitzii is descent. A very remarkable plant.

Sinn. An's Queen Sofia

I got this plant from Vivian Liu for the purpose of making cross on mini sinningia. I found this is a very nice mother or pollen plant. Easy grower and always in bloom. I may write some offsprings of An's Queen Sofia in the future.

Sinn. Pink Tiger

I like the vivid pink striped blossom of this sinningia , it is very cute. It was hybridized by Dale Martens. If you have not had this plant among your sinningia , try to get one , it's worth. :-)

Sinn. Laura

I don't collect Sinningia , just I grow all Sinningia that I can get or buy. Sinn. Laura is a very old plant to me , the dark purple color is hard to hybridize to get various new color combinations. I think it has its own style as it is. No change is sometimes a good choice. :-)

Sinn. Pirate's Sunshine Rosery

To be honest , this plant is a souvenir of my first try to make cross between mini sinningia. To name it is not because it's an excellent offspring but due to it's a ..... well .... just a souvenir. :) The bright rosy color inspired me the image of rose garden under sunshine. A decent sinningia for me.

Sinn. Mark Twin

When began to grow Sinningia , "Mark Twin" was one of my first collection. Its flower is showy , large and nice shape. We should say this is a classic icon of purple/blue Sinningia hybrids. I gorw this plant over years and still adore how handsome it is.

Sinn. Little Wood Nymph

Sinn. Little Wood Nymph is a Micro Mini Sinningia hybrid between Sinn. pusilla and Sinn. concinna. The flower shape is half way between the two species. It blooms well in spring time in Taiwan , it seems cooler temperature helps a lot to enhance the growth and enrich the flower color.

Sinn. Pirate's Lucifer

This Sinningia is definitely an eye-catching plant !!! The Pirate's series is newly announced , it's "Made in Taiwan" :-) Lovely spotted on the petal , also features lavender on upper 2 lobes and white on lower 3 lobes. I saw this photo last year from my friend Campbell.

Sinn. Ozark Rosy Tiger

I would say this is an outstanding mini Sinningia , I can't find a second similar so far. The color is so bright rosy with remarkable spots. Since the flower presentation is wonderful , it's not a big problem when it's not a really heavy bloomer. Green foliage and compact size , a recommended must have in your Sinningia collection.

Sinn. HCY's Morning Sun

Large flower shape , tender color and spots , this mini sinningia is lovely. I got this plant from Mr. H.C.Y. who is the famous Sinningia grower as well as a hybridist in Taiwan. I think "HCY's Morning Sun" is one of his best Sinningia.

Sinn. An's Bom Dia

This is also one of a kind in An's Sinningia Hybrids. Upper two lobes in pink , lower lobes white with red stripes and spots. An's Bom Dia is a super bloomer , compact and smaller foliage than other miniture Sinningia.
