Description

Like Gloxinia 'Kaiser Friedrich', this stunning bloom bears the name of a German emperor. In this case it’s Friedrich’s father and the first emperor of Germany, Kaiser Wilhelm 1. Gloxinia 'Kaiser Wilhelm' gets the almost more regal colour of a velvety deep purple on the inside of his trumpet-shaped flower, this hue serving as the lining of his emperor’s cloak!

The outside of the bloom is pure white with the white spilling over inside enough to provide the inner purple with a wide trim. Gloxinia 'Kaiser Wilhelm' will be striking as an indoor or conservatory plant or even placed on a windowsill in your study provided there is enough light.
