Ancylostemon saxatilis

12th September 2006

A small rosette forming gesneriad from China. The Flora of China says from shady damp rocks in forests, southern Gansu, northwest Hubei and southeastern Sichuan. 1,600 to 3,2100m.

My little plant has grown into a decent rosette quite rapidly. For a couple of weeks in June it has produced these pure yellow flowers.

It didn't produce any seed, but I am so hopeless with gesneriad seed that it doesn't really make any difference. I would like to raise a tiny army of them, but I can't see it happening.

It has overwintered well, and is has built up some strength this year.
