Sinningia speciosa var. jurapensis
It grows on the North face of Jurapê Mountain here in Joinville,
somewhere around 1200 meters high. It is the southernmost s. speciosa occurrence.
These are very tubular flowers and the leaves are smaller than S. speciosa from northeast in São Paulo. Sinningias may share habitat in Nature with Dyckias! They grow amid Dyckia clumps.
