The Q&A Archives: Streptocarpus Saxorum

Question: I would like to know what a streptocarpus saxorum looks like.

Answer: Streptocarpus saxorum is related to gloxinia and looks something like a gloxinia and African violet cross. It's a shrubby, many-granched perennial that makes a spreading mound of furry, gray-green fleshy leaves. Long-stemmed flowers appear in waves over much of the year, 1 1/2" wide, pale blue and white in color.
