This showy Streptocarpus puts on a dazzling display over several months, when the relatively large and boldly bicoloured flowers appear. Topping slender stems which rise above the basal rosette of strap-shaped foliage, the flaring petal tips of the trumpet-shaped flowers are a deep, ruby-red, which forms a stark contrast to the pure white eye.

We’re proud to support our British growers, and having been raised by one of our trusted UK nurseries, this indoor plant has a low carbon footprint, which makes it perfect for an eco-friendly collection or gift.

  • Home care:
    Throughout the growing season, keep them quite well watered, but as they are sensitive to overwatering, allow the compost to get a little dry in between; during this time they should also be fed with a high potash fertiliser. Remove spent flowers as they fade and trim back any old leaves that are past their best. Overwinter on a south or west-facing windowsill and water less often. Repot each spring into a slightly larger, shallow pot filled with fibre-based compost. They can also be used as summer bedding - grow in fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil in partial shade.
