What Sinningia is this?

It has relatively small fuzzy leaves and multiple flowering stems, producing long tubular blooms that flare out into small petals. They start out a sort of hot butterscotch color and deepen into a medium pink.

I think the original plant may have come from Plant Delights, but nothing like it is currently featured in their catalog.

Eric -

the easiest - would be make a good pic of your Sinnigia in bloom - and email Plant Delight. If you got it from them - you probably after some prodding can get a person who remembers what they carried several years ago.

You can look at these 2 sites :
www.burwur.net/sinns/2arten.htm
gesneriads.ca/gensinn.htm

After enjoying beautiful pics of LOTS of sinningias that more or less have something in common with your description - you probably would narrow your search to several. The person to contact would be the owner of the burwur site - there is a link on the home page - he probably grew them all. Do not forget to attach the pic.

Sounds you got yourself a very good one and you sure know how to grow it well.

Good Luck

Irina--That link doesn't work, and here I was all excited to see all the pics :-(

(God help me, I'm starting to enjoy some of the little "weeds")
