|Lipstick plant buds|
If this was the first time you ever saw this flowering plant, you might think, " This looks like a tube of lipstick."
The Lipstick Plant is the most recognizable common name for the genus Aeschynanthus.
|Lipstick Plant with many Flowers and Buds|
Lipstick Plants (Aeschynanthus) are notorious for random flowering. This has made them difficult to be commercially produced in flower on a predictable schedule. This unidentified variety is spectacular right now.
This one will be worth propagating to see if this success can be duplicated?
|Sinningia 'Esther' with seed pods|
Sinningia ‘Esther’ flowers were easy to pollinate and Sinningia cardinalis-types give you hundreds of seeds.
With S. ‘Esther’ being a hybrid of uncertain background, the seedlings will be variable. But, hopefully, they will give a showy cluster of red flowers on upright branching plants.
