We have found Sinningia tubiflora to have the same hardiness as S.
leucotricha...low single digits, probably fine at 0 degree F for a short

I had a mystery Sinningia that didn't match the description of the nursery
that sold it to me.  But PBS members clarified it was indeed correctly
identified as S. tubiflora.

That spurred discussion about S. tubiflora's hardiness.  Which jumped to S.
leucotricha, which is also apparently quite hardy.

I think!
