Streptocarpus Ladyslippers- Grape Ice
Streptocarpus is a shade-loving plant, popular as a house-plant. The leaves - each of which is a plant with its own roots - start at ground level, and are hairy, soft and shaped like primrose leaves. The flowers have two-lobed upper petals, and three-lobed lowers petals and grow singly or in pairs on long, curving stems, in Summer.
Grape Ice' is a striking selection with deep purple blossoms that are etched with intricate veining and highlighted by pure white centers and petal edges. A profuse bloomer.
