|Sinningia 'Toney Dale' IR101149
|Sinningia 'Toney Dale' is the result of a cross between one of my
hybrids and one of Richard Holders (S. 'Iris Walker' x S. 'Cherry
Delight'). My double Sinningia 'Rebecca Margarita' is a sibling.
It is a soft orange to coral, according to the light source. It has
large blooms and is a compact plant. It should carry the genes
for calyx doubles and will be interesting to see what comes in
future generations with this one. Where 'Rebecca Margarita' gets
its color from S. 'Iris Walker', the color here is straight from
|This shot you can see how long the flowers are, it
is growing in a 2 and half inch pot here.
