Gloxinella lindeniana

Photo by Ron Myhr
Grown at Wisley Gardens, UK

G. lindeniana has attractive, dramatically marked, foliage, and attractive but sparse flowers. The flowers have a faint but distinct honey scent. Like other rhizomatous gesneriads, G. lindeniana will go dormant after a period growth, and resprout from the underground rhizomes. It can be easily propagated by potting up pieces of the rhizomes in separate pots.  A photo of the planting where this photo was taken can be seen here;  leaves of another plant can be seen here. The variegation is significantly different, illustrating within-species variability.
