Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
A collection by Shayne Chandler from the Five Fingers mountain range in Vietnam. This zone 8b hardy shrubby gesneriad was first introduced by Steve Hootman over 20 years ago from China and it is good to have another collection from a new area. Tubular red-orange flowers and boxwood-like leaves.
