Kohleria ‘Pink Shadows’ has large, very dark leaves, that are slightly marbled with lighter silver shades.
The flowers are bright red tubes with light pink faces, and really stand out against the foliage.
Given enough light, the plant will remain fairly short, but it grows quite tall, when grown on a windowsill.
Very showy plant. This hybrid flowers generously, and in my experience, provided warmth and light, it flowers and grows all year-round. It can continue flowering on old growth for a very long time. The stem gets thicker with age and it can start looking almost like a bonsai.
