Chris Rose had an extensive Streptocarpus hybridizing program, producing many fine cultivars unlike anything anyone else was producing. Unfortunate, most of them are no longer available, but it’s interesting to see where he was going.

This hybrid has clear red netting on the lower lobes, against a pink background. It is quite floriferous, with up to nine flowers per peduncle (flower stem). It is a cross of S. ‘Joanna’ with a selection from S. ‘Ruby’ x S. ‘Elsi’. S. ‘Old Rose Wine’ is a sibling seedling.
