Sinn. 'Pirate's Spanish Rose'

One of the most popular Pirate's mini Sinningia , as the 2 tones of color is lovely and always a pleasure to see. People who have this plant may not be tired of seeing the change of color patterns. This flowering template is from Singapore, cultivated by Mr. Francis Sua.

Nice Foliage

I am happy to offer the seeds for people who are willing to grow them. I do not have time to take care new plants by myself and it's good to co-work with others. The Kohleria seedlings with stable silver foliage is my last cross with Kohleria and I'm glad to see the foliage which is in accordance with my cross target. The pity is the color of the flower, not many for selection as they are limited in certain color.

Beautiful leaves

Season changes and the Sinningias show their potential. For me, the foliage is always the key point as it is the basis of a flowering plant.

Sinningia 'Jung's Orange Zest' x CD139

I sold the seeds of this cross years ago and I also sowed them. My expectation was to get cascading calyx double flower as mentioned in the sale description before. The 2 years old plant recently shows what I exactly expected.

Flowering Again

Yeah ... I always have their glory moment in the beginning of summer , the speciosa type Sinningia is the easy grower and never shy to bloom. I love these bouquet-liked plants.

Time for Sinningia

The current season is just right for Sinningia to grow and bloom. They are always the highlight before entering Summer. Last weekend I just noted that I totally forgot a tray of Sinningia that I put them high for a short dormancy. They just sprout meanwhile their classmates are in bloom.  XD
