African Violet Plants in the Wild

Just thought I would share an interesting blog article that I stumbled across today. It was quite interesting to read about someone’s experience when coming across this familiar little plant in the wilds of Africa (Tanzania to be precise).

I loved the photos and hope that the author (Andrew Evans) won’t mind me replicating one here! If you have spare few minutes take a look at his blog for the National Geographic.

The flowers of this plant look a little similar to those of one of my own hybrid varieties (Ice Fairy) but the plant itself appears to have larger leaves and a flatter habit.
