I have searched a bit, but not found a Chirita 'Orchid Lace'. The plant I received with that name is now blooming and hope someone knows this plant and has an opinion concerning the name. Yale

RE: Chirita

Yale -

it is streptocarpus. not a chirita. And I am not sure it it is Orchid Lace. Pattern is right, but it should be pink.

ORCHID LACE (Sorano) Very pale pink blossoms. Heavy netting appears on the upper petal tips. The lower petals and throat are solid rose-orchid lace over pink, with some rose blushing. A touch of maroon marks the throat. Medium green foliage. (AGGS Register)

Beautiful flowers!
