I believe I'm just about ready to officially announce the first chimera blossom ever to appear on a streptocarpus. The blossom below is the 2nd blossom to appear and is also showing the distinct middle stripe. Even more exciting is this bloom is on a completely different leaf on the plant.

Dale Martens, the hybridizer of Heartland's Peacock, was kind enough to give me a start of this plant earlier this year. I put down numerous leaf cuttings and I'm pleased to report I will have starter plants to offer in September/October. Stay tuned!
