This spectacular hybrid by Dale Martens is a cross between S. ‘Texas Hot Chili’ and the red-flowered species S. dunnii. ‘Texas Hot Chili’ is itself a selection from two generations of selfings from S. ‘Joker’, another red-toned hybrid. All red-flowered Streptocarpus ultimately descend from S. dunnii, the only source of red color in the genus (so far!).

This plant was exhibited at the 2009 convention of the Gesneriad Society.
