S. cardinalis is a popular species, which produces brilliant red hooded flowers against attractive downy bright-green leaves. Like all Sinningias, it grows from tubers and has a period of dormancy after growth and flowering. The specimen above is a compact form of the species. This standard species can grow quite large.

There are several forms of the species, most illustrated on their own page and available in a slideshow by clicking one of the links below.
