I got this beautiful african violet from trader joe's back in September. I haven't really wandered into the actual species names of AV's until recently. It has wavy leaves with reddish brown stems, single or double flower bud stems, blue/violet curly flowers with white borders. The flowers last for weeks on end, the oldest being the one closest to the camera which opened about 4 weeks ago. I was wondering if anyone could identify this strain? or is it just a mystery/unique strain? (whether or not i find out i'll still love it, as my profile picture shows) thank you in advance! Hurray!

Hi GraceHazel, Welcome!

Wow, that's a beautiful African Violets (Saintpaulia) and I do hope someone will recognize it and be able to give you a proper name but sometimes the nurseries produce so many of them and unless one could find out the name from the place of purchase or original nursery, you might just have to call it a Noid (No ID). Green Grin! It sure is pretty!

Could it be a Watermelon Bay?
