Sinningia hatschbachii

Sinningias form tubers, storage organs which preserve the plant in a dormant state through the winter, and give the plant a boost in making new growth in the spring. The tubers come in many shapes, but the most common is the vertically flattened sphere. New shoots emerge from the top of the tuber, as shown in this picture of Sinningia hatschbachii. Note the beet-red color of the tuber, which is characteristic of this species.
