Streptocarpus 'Hannah Ellis'
Photo by Ron Myhr
Grown by Chris Rose
This is a product of Chris Rose's early breeding for red color in Streptocarpus. It is the result of crosses involving a white johannis x 'Elsi', and 'Ruby' x Elsi'. This particular clone caught my eye for its saturated purplish pink and distinctly picoteed corolla edge.
Chris has named this hybrid' 'Hannah Ellis' at the request of Jim Ellis of Leicestershire who 'market-tested' a number of his seedlings. In Mr. Ellis' trials, 'Hannah Ellis' proved the most popular, followed by 'Old Rose Wine' and 'Dark Secret'.
