Kohleria ‘Brazil Gem’

This kohleria was another Gesneriad (African violet family) that I was completely taken with at Erica’s house. You can see a photo of the entire plant at the top of this post.

The flowers are pretty, but it’s really the rusty red leaves that got me. I imagine this would be gorgeous backlit by natural light streaming in through the window. Just the thing to brighten a crisp winter day.
