This fine hybrid by Chris Rose of  the UK, draws red color from Dale Martens’ ‘Texas Hot Chili’ with flowering habit, floriferousness and scent from the species S. vandeleurii. It is a sibling seedling to a named hybrid S. ‘Biscentenary’. Another interesting characteristic of this hybrid is the changing flower color. Flowers open an intense pink-mauve, and then fade to a beautiful clear dusty rose color.

For scale, this plant is in a 5″ pot.

The cultivar won Best In Show at the 2016 convention of the Gesneriad Society. A closer view of the flowers on this specimen can be seen here.
