Color Challenge Saturday Indigo -- Our two blooming houseplants -- African violet/SaintpauliasteemCreated with Sketch.

in colorchallenge •  9 months ago

Just found those pictures from my files.I made them when we arrived in Switzerland in our flat last November.Our neighbor looked well while we have been away for one and a half year.(Last time we have been there in the meantime)
Looks as the plants were well organized and welcomed us here.My mum had them as long as I can remember...I would say they are over 20/30 years old,or even older-but rarely have seen them blooming.
I don't know their name unfortunately,but if someone knows its name,please let me know.
Thanks a lot for your help.

The name is Saintpaulia,better known as African violet.Native to Tanzania and southeastern Kenya.There are 6–20 species and some of them are endangered.

Special thanks to @thekitchenfairy,she knew the name of this beautiful plant.
