Gesneriad Banner

Gesneriads

The gesneriad family consists of over 3,000 species and over 133 genera. It was named after 16th century Swiss naturalist Konrad von Gesner. Most gesneriads are from tropical parts of the world.

Some of the most common plants in this genera are the Cupid's Bower (Achimenes), Lipstick Plant (Aeschynanthus), Flame Violet (Episcia), Goldfish Plant (Nematanthus), African Violet (Saintpaulia), Florist Gloxinia (Sinningia), and Cape Primrose (Streptocarpus).

We only offer Achimenes as dormant rhizomes, which are available from February to April.
