Sinningia speciosa jurapensis

Ok , this is not Dyckia but it lives happily with them.
I found this royal blue colored Sinningia in mid eighties on the Southeast flank of the
 Jurapê Mountain here in Joinville.
This is the Southern most  occurrence of  a Sinningia speciosa.
Now I have them  alba, light lavanda blue, red and pink.
The original dark blue ones are stunning...
they are late bloomers, this is due to their South occurrence.
Our winters are  more severe than in São Paulo State littoral up North ( where all other speciosa comes from) and this plant takes longer to bloom.
