Here is a little better picture of the plant I was asking about earlier.
gloria, where do you find these things? you amaze me ; )
I take secret trips while y'all are working. LOL...Just joking....this plant was given to a friend of mine and she in turn gave me a cutting.... I think I'll take some cuttings of it and bring them to the FL plant swap.
I got the answer.
it's a Gloxinia sylvatica...common name Bolivian Sunset...Tropical plant.
Aha well done, its a really pretty plant, I've not heard of it but I will look out for it in future.
Gloria, just looked at this and was about to tell you that was what it looked like to me. they have very pretty flowers. got mine at a local trade last spring. i am thinking that was developed at hatchett creek near here, could be wrong. mine stil has some blooms on it.
Does it put on seeds....mine is blooming for the first time.
Glory, seems to make seeds but i never caught any, not sure.
That is really a pretty plant. Orange and yellow are so showy together.
