This plant is John Boggan's hybrid of Gloxinia erinoides 'Red Satin' and Kohleria rugata. It has flowers substantially more Kohleria-like than the widely distributed xG. 'Rosea'. It does, however, have something of the inflorescence pattern of the Gloxinias, as illustrated in this picture of G. erinoides 'Red Satin'.
