Kohleria coccinea

See all kohlerias.

Kohleria coccinea is a kohleria species, I couldn’t find much information about. I bought a rhizome from ebay and it was shipped to me all the way from Germany.

kohleria coccinea

The plant is a slow, sturdy grower. Very thick robust stems, large bright green, velvety, serrated leaves, edged with dark red fuzz. The stem is covered with dark red hairs. The flowers are large and showy.

It’s on the larger side for kohlerias. Much sturdier than a typical kohleria hybrid, this pant doesn’t need as much staking (though I still did stake it out of habit) and can hold its own weight. Seems a lot more resilient towards infestations, and has been actively growing and producing rhizomes all year round for me.
