Common name: African Violet
African violets can grow from 6-15cm tall and anywhere from 6-30cm wide. The leaves are rounded to oval, 2.5-8.5cm long with a 2-10cm petiole, finely hairy, and have a fleshy texture. The flowers are 2-3cm in diameter with a five-lobed velvety corolla "petals", and grow in clusters of 3-10 or more on slender stalks called peduncles. Wild species can have violet, purple, pale blue or white flowers.
African violets have long been associated with mothers and motherhood. For this reason they have been a traditional gift to mothers in many cultures around the world. African violets are also associated with Easter and Valentine's Day.
