Gloxinia sylvatica

Hi Fred,

The Gloxinia (Seemannia) sylvatica you will receive has been growing 
here in Florida, zone 9b.  It grows in half-day (morning sun), blooms in 
the late fall and goes somewhat dormant in summer.  It gets water all 
year.  I have, however, dried some rhizomes off in summer with no 
problems.  I have been told it is hardy to zone 8, but the year before 
last we had a light touch of frost and a few of the leaves around the 
outside browned.  The rhizomes were fine.  It sends out runners and 
multiplies like mad.
