Columnea hirta ‘Light Prince’ is noted for its green/white variegated foliage; the bright red/orange flowers or the white berries are a bonus.

This plant was exhibited at the 2015 convention of the Gesneriad Society; two plants were exhibited at the 2018 convention, and can be seen here and here.

A photo of the plain species can be seen here, and another of ‘Light Prince’ in flower here.

This species produces a soft white berry, as can be seen here and here.
