Streptocarpus 'Merle'


Streptocarpus 'Merle' (Streptocarpus)

I was given some Strepto leaves early this year, and I took leaf cuttings from them. They all grew into nice little plants, and here's one, called 'Merle'.

Ah - a while ago. Merle only opened up on Friday.

It's very nice at Cannington - I donate my flowerpots to them! ;-)) They put Open Garden posters up for us, too.

Now that I have a greenhouse perhaps there will be an increase in my gesneriad collection...this is an amazingly beautiful bloom.

Thats lovely. I have one very similar called Dainty Lady. The markings on yours are slightly darker.

I've got rather a large collection now, Cinders - too large - but my plant stall will benefit, won't it! There's one with a very intriguing name - 'Black Panther' and the bud is opening very deep purple! :-))

I have that one too. The stems get rather long I find on that one, and they tend to fall or bend over.

Thanks - I'll try to be ready for it!

Just going to put a picture up of Black Panther.

Thanks. It's my favourite - so far! :-)
