Streptocarpus Charlotte


By Sunrose

Streptocarpus Charlotte

Chelsea flower show 2011. This is similar to the winning Plant of the year in 2010 at the show from Dibleys nurseries. The first bi-colour yellow and blue flat flowing streptocarpus "Harlequin Blue", this one is "Charlotte"

Hi Cinderella! No..."Charlotte" is not new, the "Harlequin Blue" was launched last year in 2010 at the show. I dont have a photo of it but it looks very similar to this photo except the entire bottom petal is completely yellow with dark purple veins bleeding into it...very striking indeed! I would really love to get my hands on one! :-)

Sorry Sunrose, crossed lines !! I have seen Harlequin Blue, it is beautiful, but I haven't bought it yet, I have so many now and propogate and sell them for charity at our local Country Market. Another one that is slightly similar is Silvia. I have one in my photos, not sure which page if you wanted to see what its like. Do you grow Streps too.
