Sinningia leucotricha is now emerging above ground: each year the first sign
of life is a sort of silver crosier. I think this plant is now in its third
(or is it fourth?) season outside. It grows in the rain shadow of the eaves
right against the house foundation. No, I’m not going to suggest that this
is evidence of Global Warming, but I have to admit that twenty years ago I
would not have dared to plant this one outside with any expectation of long
range success.
