wow we have someone called KOHLERIA on the board - how eclectic can this group be (despite the problems with neo - has anyone found "reply" or double click the message does not expand it?).
No Paul, they didn't tell me what it is - I said "that's a nice weed, can I have some". :-))
I figured it might be a gesneriad but i was expecting something taller . . . this thing just sets up and starts growing all over the place like a magnificent ground cover. I am nearly certain it will be unhappy in the dry season and I will be accused of poor water conservation behaviour by trying to keep it happy. FYI there are some really huge gesneriads at Wilson Gardens which I would happily live at if it wasn't hours from absolutely everywhere,
just wiki'd it and apparently they hybridize happily in the wild so they could become anything hoho

Thanks for that bit of info. It looked like a Gesneriad but while I didn't know anything about thatgenus, I did guess correctly that it is a gesneriad.Is all the hair we see on the outside of the flower in Berni's photo typical of many Kohleria species?Just curious...Paul M.==
