The variety Gloxinia Empress Hybrid Mix is a modern hybrid variety of Gloxinia produced by Takii in Japan and is widely recognised as the quality benchmark in Gloxinia varieties.

Gloxinia Empress Hybrid Mix is an early flowering hybrid variety producing masses of long-lasting single flowers on compact plants that are either grown as indoor perennials or semi-hardy perennials in sheltered and warmer climates. The variety Gloxinia Empress Hybrid Mix is a hybrid variety grown by commercial pot plant growers supplying the premium indoor and exotic plant markets. Unlike the common species varieties that produce irregular and varied plant and floral characteristics, the cultivar Gloxinia Empress Hybrid Mix is a proven, first class, top performer. Whilst Gloxinia plants are not necessarily the easiest flowers to grow (particularly germinate as the seeds are tiny), provided the seeds are sown after the last frosts, the floral rewards they provide are second to none. In order to ensure you maximise your chances of success, the Gloxinia Empress Hybrid Mix seeds supplied by The Climbing Fig are supplied in the form of commercial grade pelletised seeds for ease of handing and to ensure improved germination results. Use of The Climbing Fig Seed Starter-Pack available at our eBay store, can also assist in improving germination success. Gloxinia Empress Hybrid Mix is an interspecific hybrid of the species Sinningia x hybrida.
