How did this happen?

Sinniniga 'Esther' - four buds

            Remember when I told you about Sinningia ‘Esther’?

            This red flowered Sinningia has cardinalis-type flowers but it is limited by only one flower per leaf axil.

            This picture of a rooted side shoot from my original plant is budded and flowering.

            Four flowers per leaf.  How can this happen?

Sinningia 'Esther' -- How?

  1. As plants mature, they will often produce more flowers per axil. My guess is that it has S. bulbosa (or another S. cardinalis relative that produces multiple flowers per axil) in its ancestry.
