Also known as "Strawberry patch."

Episcia 'Strawberry Patch' is one I grew years ago. I don't see many Episcia's for sale anymore, they might possibly be available somewhere again in spring.

Lyndon Lyon Greenhouses, Inc. carries Episcia plants as well asAfrican Violets and other Gesneriads but I don't know if they have Strawberry Patch and I don't know if they ship in the winter.

I have one actually. I got it locally which is why I asked where OP is from. They have Episcias all the time at this nursery

LOL we really only have the one. We used to have 2 but the other closed years ago and now there is a rundown ghetto nursery there. The nursery that has the episcias gets them from someone who propagates them for the nursery. They have a few people who do that for them...I used to grow hedychiums and ornamental bananas for them 15 years ago. They have someone who grows colocasias and alocasias, and a water plant guy, and a carnivorous plant guy...they used to have a Tacca lady and a Hoya lady but both those quit the plant hobby several years ago.

If you're moving to Phoenix or Tucson, you'll have a lot of nurseries to check out. Of course, they are mostly cacti and succulents!

I'm sorry, it doesn;t have any trailers right now, and its the centerpiece of one of my dry terrariums. I really don't want to disturb it
