Sinningia ... never goes out of fashion

Designer's Bridal Saree

One of my previous Smithiantha hybrids and I always have this one in my best parentage list for hybridization. It is a very strong plant that can produce dense inflorescence / flower cluster which is the essential character for a showy Smithiantha.
