A collection from China of this surpirisingly hardy gesneriad whose identity remains a mystery. This was growing on a mountain summit in a shaded area with hard limestone outcrops coated in thick moss which proved ideal conditions for this little gem. Tubular yellow flowers are a delight and has handled 10F in our garden growing in a stump.
