Sinningia speciosa 'Hollywood'

gloxinia Hollywood tuber

2 tubers £4.99
£14.97 £13.00
  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil or fibre-based compost if grown indoors
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: usually from spring to autumn
  • Hardiness: tender (will need to be overwintered indoors, or in a shaded greenhouse)

    The large cup-shaped flowers of this eye-catching perennial are a wonderful blend of lilac, purple and white. These really stand out above the fresh green foliage, and when used as part of the seasonal bedding scheme, they look great when teamed with most shades of pink or purple.

  • Home care: Place the tubers rounded side down, and lightly embed them into the surface of the compost. Keep compost moist but not waterlogged, and keep them in a warm, humid atmosphere. Whilst growing, the foliage should be protected from water splash and strong sunlight. If overwintering, lift and dry the tubers after the plants have died back, and store in a cool but not cold place until ready to plant the following spring.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
