Exhibited at the 2020 virtual show of the Gesneriad Society.

This is a beautiful plant, but the color of the flowers is just a bit more blue than in other photos. Bluish/purple is very difficult to capture photographically. The actual color, according to the Gesneriad Register, is more purplish than in the feature photo. In the links below, the flower close-up comes closest to the described color (see the image caption).
