Streptocarpus

Popularly called cape primrose, Streptocarpus make excellent house plants. They are noted for their large, colorful, flaring flowers. Steptocarpus, which can tolerate cooler temperatures than many other gesneriads, are valuable color accent plants for a shade garden or patio during summer months. The grandiflora types have large flowers, and the multiflora types have clusters of more numerous smaller flowers and the plants tend to be more compact.
