Avanti Gloxinia: Mix includes white, scarlet, peach, rose, red, red with white edge, wine/white edge and blue.
While commonly referred to as "gloxinia" or "florist s gloxinia," this plant (Sinningia speciosa) is not a true gloxinia at all. True gloxinias do not produce tubers but siningias do. "Florist s gloxinia" is a herbaceous perennial and a member of the Gesneriaceae family, same as the popular African violet. It is native to Brazil.
Gloxinias are among the best plants that are grown for spring and summer enjoyment, although with proper handling, flowering plants can be produced throughout the year. Their velvety, bell-shaped flowers can average over 3 inches in diameter. Each flower is displayed on a long petiole. Their color-range is white to pink to red to blue to purple. They can also be two-toned with white centers or white rims. There are single and double flowering types, with petal edges smooth or wavy. Their foliage is oblong, graceful and velvety like their flowers. Gloxinia will not be outdone for showmanship.
They can be grown in the house anywhere an African Violet thrives.
