Celebrating 200 years of streptocarpus cultivation at #RHSChelsea


Streptocarpus rexii was found in Knysna, S. Africa in 1818 by James Bowie, a plant collector for Kew Gardens.  That was the start of the cultivation of streptocarpus plants.  To celebrate this important bicentenary, we have dedicated part of our Chelsea display this year to the many beautiful and delicate streptocarpus species.
