This specimen was at least a meter tall and perhaps somewhat wider in total spread. Some of the older and darker leaves (which have a reddish reverse) retain evidence of the juvenile foliage, which is very dark with attractive lighter veining. A closeup of the flowers shows markings on the lobes, and another illustrates the woody nature of the long stems.

A photo of a very small plant, grown as a bonsai and exhibited at the 2020 virtual show of the Gesneriad Society, can be seen here.
