A number of years ago, Sinningia speciosa ‘Paschia’ was available as a commercial seed line from several sources. It had also been sold as a “hybrid of Sinningia and Streptocarpus”, a claim patently untrue. The unusual feature of the hybrid was that all of the plants produced nodding (slipper-shaped) flowers in shades of red. The flowers weren’t enormously large, but they were attractive and produced in profusion. My plants did not have flowers held as high above the foliage as this specimen, but they were otherwise similar.
