Isn't this a good looking gesneriad. It's a Drymonia pendulina which was on display at the Shelby Gardens in Tampa. The photo is from the gesneriphile list which you can suscribe to. What a wonderful plant to have in a hanging basket.
Time for the summer doldrums to be over and everyone to get excited about their indoor light/window gardening again.
The blog is back and this season we'll try to have more tips on growing and keeping the plants that you have looking good. Plus, more photos of interesting gesneriads for you to check out, perhaps order and grow in your own home.
The first of the events for the year will be at Bachman's on Lyndale on Saturday October 25, 2008 during store hours. Come and see our display and plan on having some fun chatting about violets and gesneriads.
