Kohleria ‘Dale’s Copper Penny’ is a larger robust kohleria hybrid.
It’s a tall upright plant, that readily produces offshoots and rhizomes. The stems are thick, robust, and covered with red fuzz.
The leaves are very bright green, with a bit of a coppery hue to them, which set this plant off from the many dark-leaved hybrids out there.
Overall, the plant has a sturdy natural look to it. The flowers are very long, bright-red and fuzzy.
From a presonal exprience this particular kohleria took a long time to grow and flower. It’s possible that it just might require more light than some of the other varieties and it was’t getting enough, but I did wait quite a bit to see if flower.
However, once it has started to flower, it hasn’t been without flowers. The flowers seem to last longer too.
