This hybrid between mini-sinn. and tubiflora is impressed. The color tends to tubiflora but the foliage is much compact than tubiflora. This one successfully combines the good characters of its parents, unfortunately the scent is not so sure as some say yes , some say no smell. :) The name "Nieves" is a Spanish name which means "the snow". Courtesy to Mr. Stone, the owner of this pretty Sinningia.
