Gesneria aggregata

Curtis, 1827

Now known as Sinningia aggregataS. aggregata has been much used in hybridizing.  A photo of a plant can be seen here.

These prints are from two simultaneous editions of Curtis' Botanical Magazine.  The image to the left was from the "large format" pages -- the image was the same size, but printed on a larger page.  Note the subtle but distinct differences in the hand coloring.  The picture to the right is more accurate -- I don't know of any forms of S. aggregata which exhibit the pink color of the other plate.
