Sinningia ‘Invasion Force’, or Hardy Pink Gloxinia, is a deciduous perennial that forms a mound of soft, grey-green leaves from tubers. In early summer, 2′ flower stalks emerge bearing fragrant, pendant pink trumpet flowers. Attracts hummingbirds.
Best grown in moist, humus-rich soil, that does not dry out. Deadhead frequently to prolong blooming. Mulch heavily in the fall.

Sinningia ‘Invasion Force’ is a gorgeous plant that is hard to photograph! This Hardy Gloxinia is a hummingbird magnet with these gorgeous pink trumpet-shaped blooms that emerge from 2’ tall stalks. The mount of sod foliage at the bottom is fuzzy, soft and friendly. This plant is hardy to USDA Zone 7-9 and likes ☀️ sun to 😎 part shade. To prolong blooming, simply deadhead the spent blooms. This is a staff favorite! 🐸
