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.

You'll find a picture of the plant on the following website:
