Hi Melanie,

Someone at the Tampa show must have mislabeled the plant in this photo; it does not appear to be Optimara 'Annabelle' which has bluish-purple bell shaped flowers:

The bloom shape is not right for Optimara 'Isabelle' either which has pink bell-shaped blooms: http://www.optimara.com/optima...

The image might better be suited for the general database entry for AV's: African Violets (Saintpaulia)
