Gloxinia nematanthodes ‘Evita’ is a stunning plant from the mountains of Argentina featuring striking reddish-orange, tubular, bell-like flowers on short burgundy red stems. The ovate leaves are a lush, deep green color. The flowers, sought after by hummingbirds, are late to appear, often in early summer, but will last until winter’s frost when they go dormant.
Hardy Gloxinia spreads by stolons above the ground, which makes it an excellent trailing groundcover. Prefers a organic, well-drained soil and moderate waterings.
