Very exotic foliage, velvety, translucent and with bright copper patches This gesneriad grows up to 60 cm tall and blooms profusely in Spring and Summer with VERY exotic flowers. Say tree-gloxinia and many people will imagine this plant. But plant experts will smile about this common name, because the genus Gloxinia does not exist anymore (it is Sinningia now) and, of course, this shrublet is not a "tree".

Give bright shade or half shade. This Kohleria takes close-to-freezing temperatures but it is needs to go indoors in winter ir you want to keep its foliage.
