Grown at Geneva Botanical Garden

Dr. Alain Chautems, of the Geneva Botanical Garden, thinks this species is likely to be Sinningia piresiana, although this has not yet been confirmed.  The plant produces a caudex-like tuber, and in general habit is similar to S. canescens or S. leucotricha.  The flowers have some resemblance to those illustrated in an antique print of Gesneria douglasii.
