Ornamental Herb: Could you help me ID my plant please.
How about an african violet? variety of Saintpaulia spp…..
To me it looks similar to Usambaraveilchen (Germanname)/Saintpaulia/, commonly known as African violet.
African violets are popular houseplants in the west: For your visual delight, all those colors of a houseplant from South Africa..
very popular in USA and Canada, may even in UK
Binomial : Saintpaulia ionantha
Flowers in normal size are about an inch across total.. leaves upto 2 inches long, 1.5 inches wide, and root easily to give rise to a new true descendant..
hybridizers have to wait for the seeds to develop..
I never learnt to fertilize them ( no pollinators inside the home, ) ha ha..:)
