African violets, formerly known by their botanical name Saintpaulia but now included within Streptocarpus, make attractive houseplants originating from tropical East Africa. They are available in a many colours from white, through pink and red to purple and various flower types. With careful cultivation they can flower for many months and the compact plants are ideal for small spaces such as windowsills.
