Toronto Gesneriad Society Show 2011 – New Plants

While the sales table was not as exciting as it was last year there were still some good plants to be found. Especially interesting was a table or two full of some gorgeous new Russian hybrid Saintpaulias.

Saintpaulia 'Ma's Winter Moon'
Saintpaulia ‘Ma’s Winter Moon’

Saintpaulia ID 2
Saintpaulia ‘(Can you read Russian?)’

Saintpaulia 'Reigning Beauty'

Saintpaulia 'Buckeye Seductress'

Saintpaulia 'Morning Star'
Saintpaulia ‘Morning Star’ (Actually more yellow than it looks here)

Saintpaulia ID 1
Saintpaulia “Working on tracking down an ID”

As well as leaves for Saintpaulia ‘Kris’ and ‘Aca’s Tornado’.

We also got a Chirita USBRG98-083, Chirita ‘Crossroad’ and a Petrocosmea ‘Momo’.

Chirita USBRG98-083

And then, because they were so cheap I couldn’t help but pick up four Episcia cuttings: ‘Black Dragon’, ‘Jim’s Canadian Sunset’, ‘Camel’ and ‘Karlyn’.

And I think that’s about all the new plants I got yesterday.

  1. I can read Russian, but I can’t read that handwriting. My best guess for the spelling of the last word, when I look it up in the dictionary, means “cherry.”

    • Andrew says:

      Ya the label isn’t too clear which isn’t helping any but I appreciate the try. Only one I can come up with similar to that might be ‘Frosty Cherry’ but the colour looks way too far off for it to be right. We’re trying to get in touch with the sellers via some in club contacts for this and the other one with an ID so hopefully I’ll get a name for them soon.

    That’s a lot of plant loot. Those are great looking Saintpaulia’s!

  3. Tanya says:

    The Russian violet label says: ЕК-Зимняя Вишня.
    It’s a hybrid of a famous Russian hybridizer Elena Korshunova (‘EK’ part of the violet’s name). Translates as Winter Cherry.

    Sorry, forgot to specify: on the page it’s under #57
