Sinningia leucotricha

Another beauty at this time of year is Sinningia (syn. Reichsteineria) leucotricha. Also know as "Brazilian Edelweiss", this display is as consistent and dependable as you get in the plant kingdom. First the flowers and then the leaves, which keep getting larger and more impressive throughout the Summer. Plus, they have interesting tubers which can be raised above the ground for added interest. Who can resist?
