    Sinningia Overview

    Sinningia is a genus of around 75 species in the Gesneriaceae family of flowering plants. Members are tuberous herbaceous perennials or shrubs from Central and South America. They are often cultivated as houseplants for their large colourful bell or tubular-shaped flowers that in the wild are pollinated by hummingbirds, bees, bats and moths. They need a period of winter dormancy and protection from frost.
