Showy flowers that just beg to be touched. Grow Emperor Frederick in a pot outdoors for the summer then bring it inside and enjoy it indoors during the winter.
The spectacularly beautiful Gloxinia with its huge, velvety, bell-shaped blooms isn't difficult to grow in your home. It is a member of a large family of plants called gesneraids, all of which are particularly interesting to grow for unusual colour and growth habits. This super-popular house plant can actually be placed outside during the summer to soak up a bit of sun and then moved indoors during the winter months.
