Alsobia ‘Cygnet’, a hybrid of A. dianthiflora and A. punctata, is an easy-to-grow plant which produces large white frilled flowers with tiny purple dots. It can be a very vigorous specimen producing many strawberry-like stolons with small plantlets along the stolon’s length, each of which can be separately rooted. If the stolons are pinched off, multiple crowns will be produced from the base of the plant.

A. ‘San Miguel’ is a similar hybrid, produced by selfing ‘Cygnet.
